Sun Etchings

After forgetting to close the shutter on his camera during an all night exposure photographer Chris McCaw discovered that the sun had not just altered the images from the night before but actually etched itself into the surface of the photograph.

“The subject of the photograph (the sun) has transcended the idea that a photograph is simple a representation of reality, and has physically come through the lens and put it’s hand onto the final piece,” said McCaw in an explanation of the series. “This is a process of creation and destruction, all happening within the the camera.”

McCaw’s Sunburn series is on exhibit in Times and Tides at San Francisco-based Haines Gallery. You can view more images from his Sunburn series on his website.
