Time, exposed utilizes an analogue photographic process to explore the relationship between photography and temporality. This photographic series depicts the daily occurrence of the sun travelling from one side of the horizon to the other over the course of a single day.
My photographic project in combination with its processes mirror the ephemeral nature of the appearance of the sun each day. The images are created with photographic emulsion and printed onto metal plates, recalling the aesthetic nature of the earliest pioneers of photography. But unlike a traditional printing process, the prints have not been stabilized by a darkroom fixing agent, rendering each latent image in a continuous light-sensitive state. This unconventional process not only places the images in a constant state of change, but also sees a material paradox as the photograms of the Sun are subject to over-exposure at the hand of its most vital resource for our existence; light.
