In his series Sunburn, San Francisco-based photographer Chris McCaw turns the subject of his work, the sun, into an active participant in the printmaking process, creating fascinating prints that are literally burned by the path of the sun. The body of work was the result of a happy accident. Intending to create an all night exposure of the stars while camping, McCaw failed to wake up before sunrise. He discovered that while the night's exposure had been destroyed, an interesting phenomenon had occurred on the film base, which had a hole burnt through it from the intense rays of the rising sun.
This exhibition is funded by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
There is a great article about Chris' work in last Sunday's LA Times:
Leah Ollman did a great review of Chris' show at the Duncan Miller Gallery in Los Angeles in the LA Times on 4/18/08:
The show dates for this exhibition have been extended to June 14th!
Chris will be there for the closing reception June 14th. Please stop by and say hello!
Chris also has Sunburn prints and work from the family farm and the travelogue series going up in a very interesting setting in the bay area with some of his favourite photographers of all time:
