Homemade cameras use the sun to burn photographs

April 26, 2017

Chris McCaw has an interesting and innovative photographic process where he exposes vintage photo paper to the sun over long timeframes, resulting in images that are burned by the sun with unique quality. 

This process results in a dreamy, outer space-like world with a three dimensional feel. Some of these images are produced with various hand-built view cameras as big as 30 by 40 inches, which are equipped with large aerial lenses designed to allow a maximum amount of light to pass through. McCaw currently has a show entitled Time and Tides at the Haines Gallery in San Francisco. More from this exhibition here.
