Hunterdon Solargraphs Project

A solargraph is a very long exposure pinhole photograph. In the image, the path of the sun (just a little different each day) is visible as a bright curved line, one for each day of the exposure.

After my first batch of solargraph cameras in early 2015 made some interesting images, I decided to place many more cameras throughout Hunterdon County during the fall and winter of 2015-2016. The exposure times will be about three months from equinox to winter solstice or vice versa. Right now I am making the cameras, and will place them in mid-September, as close to the autumnal equinox as I can manage. The images that come from them will form a portrait of our local landscape: towns and countryside, historic and everyday places. The cameras will be labelled with #HunterdonSolargraphs and this web address. I'd love your input if you have a place that needs a very slow photograph made, drop me a line through the contact page.
