Unique silver-gelatin paper negatives from camera obscura projections
32 in. x 80 in. (diptych)
These two images represent the same view made at opposite times of day. A bright day (left) presents
itself as a negative – complete with black sky – and was made with an exposure of less than a minute.
Conversely, the night image (right) took nearly ten hours to create, yet shows a blinding landscape
punctuated only by artificial lights.
They are shown in thier original orientation, as images enter the camera obscura
reversed and inverted.
