Three hours track of the orbiting sun. Paper negative 50×50 cm
New camera. Produces 40cm diameter paper negatives.
Triptych taken with the TripleTelecam. Contact print from papernegatives.120×50 cm
First image from the SunRa Solar Camera. 45 minute exposure from the rooftop of my studio. I did not develop the paper negatives, this is how they came out of the camera. The sun ‘burned’ it’s track into the paper.
Discovering new ways of solargraphy. I created a multi-tele-camera from tubes of different lengths an d different pinhole sizes. Mounted it on a tripod, faced sunwards under right angle . Placed on the roof of my studio, it bears some resemblance of a rocket launcher, and also of some sort of icy dark extrasolar mineral cluster.
I am testing it right now. Keep you posted for the results.
This photo was taken with the Shoebox-pinhole camera. The paper negative was bleached with potassium dichromate/ hydrochloric acid an redeveloped. This created a positive image. #reverseprocess
Pinhole image from my current exhibition ‘Lucas Kastelijn | Jacques Sonck‘ at WillemTweeFabriek. For this project I roamed the streets of Brussels with local residents and an array of ‘Totem camera’s’. These large pinhole camera’s acted as strange landmarks during the exposure time. We took long journeys trough this fascinating city, walking and by public transport, carrying the camera’s on our backs. This image is 90cm wide. The original paper negative was chemically ‘reversed’ to make a positive image.
