McCaw had a busy summer, traveling from the Arctic Circle to the Mojave, expanding his Sunburn series of unique paper negatives. For those of you who don’t know, McCaw photographs the sun moving across the sky with large format cameras and long exposures. Where there is normally a negative, he places a piece of silver gelatin photo paper instead (a paper negative). He adjusts the lens to let the sun’s path burn through or sear the paper during the composition, with exposures up to 12 hours. The paper negative in the camera becomes the work of art. There is only one of each, and they cannot be reproduced. Work from this series has been acquired by major museums and private collectors
