SOLARGRAPHY: Is the image that registers the trail of the sun during its apparent movement on the horizon. It is produced in pinhole cameras with the use of photosensitive materials in a way that it appears directly as a visible print without needing chemical processing. In order to achieve such a result it is necessary to have long periods of exposure that take up from one day to several seasons during the year.

Solargraphy started in 1999 by a group of photographers: Slawomir Decyk, Pawel Kula and Diego López Calvín who launched the "Solaris Project" in order to compare the sun paths in different latitudes of the world.

It is a simple technique that produces surprising results. The image appears directly on photosensitive paper through its natural blackening, as a negative inverted picture. The paper is then scanned and digitally processed with the use of a suitable software in order to create a digital archive. The originals can only be viewed under dimmed light conditions. An interesting mixture of old and new technical procedures. Read Less
