Photographer Chris McCaw tracks the movement of the sun across the sky with exposures ranging from about 2 to 8 hours in length with his home-built large-format cameras which use black and white print paper. The long, direct-sunlight exposures create positives–solarized images. And because the sun is so highly focused, the paper burns, leaving gashes and streaks across the images. See more on Chris McCaw’s website. Thanks to Casey Brandt for bringing to my attention!
