Transcript of Solargraphy
Solarigraphics or solargraphs are pinhole photographs taken with a lensless pinhole camera with a long exposure. By doing so the invisible movements of the Sun can be made visible in landscapes. The weather during half a year is seen in the image above. The Sun's slow path across the sky is beautifully captured by this unique image. The Sun´s altitude (it's peak) is reached in midsummer on June 21st in the northern hemisphere. Every day the Sun leaves one line after one. The tracks of the moving Sun are visible and increase progressively from December to June. The missing traces are due to the Sun beeing obscured on overcast days. Solargraphy is a very good and simple photographic method to catch the movements of the Sun onto a piece of black & white photographic paper. Any canister, tin, can or black boxes can be used as a pinhole camera.
My "travelling model" of the pinhole camera is a small black film canister. The construction of the camera is simple.
Two pop cans a little electrical tape and you have an astronomical camera, capable of revealing hidden landscapes. LETS GET BUSY!! what is it?
