6×6 solargraphs

This is a  series of solargraphs taken during six months with two different cameras (made up of soft drink cans, see the last photograph). One of the cameras was fixed for six months (first photo) and the other one was changed every month (next six photographs). The first picture shows six months of solar paths while the other six picturees shows the suntrails in periods of one month.

I hope you like them!

  1. As Patrick states, these photos are not developed. The real image is formed directly on the photo paper and scanned in a “darkroom”. The amonut of light that the paper received is such that if you develop it you’ll get a black piece of photographic paper. There is some discussion on how the image is formed without the need of a developing agent, but . . . this is part of the game!

  2. Solargraphs never cease to amaze me. For one the fact that the photographic paper requires no developing chemical to view the image. Secondly the very notion that we are able to record the movement of the sun over prolonged periods of time, is amazing. My favorite image from this set, is the second from the top, because the city is most clear in that image.

    • thank you Jeff!
      yes, solargraphs are amazing; I have “my” theory about the generation of the image, I think that the high energy of direct sun UV light is the cause of the formation of the image, but it should be tested!
