camera: Old Bean
exposure: 5 months, 23 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes
well, i finally captured the sun trails that i was hoping for. this exposure was made from the fall equinox to the spring equinox. it is still not the most exciting solargraph in the world, but i’m pleased with the results nonetheless. my next experiment will be from the summer solstice until the winter solstice, and i’m thinking that i will build an entirely new camera for this one with a smaller, sharper pinhole. i’m also thinking that finding a secret place to mount the new camera would be a good plan with perhaps something more interesting in the foreground. that may be a challenge though, so likely i’ll just put it on my rooftop again. still enjoying the experiment though, and will continue on with it. there is something very gratifying about capturing these extremely long-term exposures…

I have been selected to participate in a show at Mota Italic Gallery in Berlin, Germany!
The gallery specializes in typeography, and is hosting a show entitled New Vintage Digital Vernacular Letters, which is a collection of alphanumeric photos from all over the world, featuring various letters, words, numbers, signs, etc. The show opened last Friday and will be up until the end of March. I’m quite thrilled, and honored to be selected to participate in this collaborative installation piece.
project complete! overall, this was a fun excersise and helped me to push myself a little. i found that i wasn’t always able to capture something every week, and on a few occasions had to dig back into material shot at an earlier time, but the project kept me shooting and thinking about things i was seeing.
the following is a link to a project i’ve contributed to through Eager Magazine, an online photography publication. the concept of the “Follow the Red Line” project is to create the longest photo series ever made that binds us all by means of a simple red line entering the picture on the left and leaving it somewhere on the right side. the contributions are all self-portraits and the objective is to connect photographers across the globe, currently standing at 87 pictures long.
