Black Sun and Artifact


spitzbergen_b400

“9/17/2006, 8:45 am – 9:45am, N 78°13.370’ E 015°40.024’”

from the series “1h Northern Hemisphere (2005-2008)” by Hans-Christian Schink.

01-2

Upon first sighting, I thought Schink’s images were of floating artifacts created through actual damage to the film. I think that drew me to the pictures much more than if someone said “Hey, look what he made by overexposing the sun.” I figured it out pretty quick the first time I saw one (and remembered other famous black sun photo), but I still can’t get over how close the artifacts look.

Regardless, beautiful images.
