Sun Works

From the low-slung light of winter to the intense rays of the summer, the star is right there above me. I have no need to go anywhere else.

Expanding on the long-term project titled Chasing Suns, I have in the last year been recording at intervals, the Sun’s daily journey across the sky. Images are made using a 1920s folding camera and a darkroom enlarger loaded with silver gelatin paper. 

After spending time making work in locations that have an abundance of sunlight, I decided to focus my attention in one place. A place and sky that I could observe daily and nurture an imitate re-connection and understanding with. The location for this set of images is my home. A house built in 1939 that stands on an suburban East Midlands street.
