About

Chris McCaw builds his own large-format cameras and outfits them with powerful lenses for his "Sunburned" series. Instead of film, McCaw inserts expired vintage, fiber-based gelatin silver photo paper directly into the camera and aims the lens at the sun. Long exposures magnify the sun’s rays, which literally burn through or sear the sun’s path across the surface of the paper while creating a solarized image of the landscape or seascape. McCaw uses the most basic elements of the medium, light and time, to create his unique photographs that recall the work of photography pioneer Henry Fox Talbot and pays homage to the “slash” and “hole” paintings of Minimalist artist Lucio Fontana.
