Solargraphs show half a year of sun in a single image. The six month long exposure compresses the time from 17 December 2007 to 21 June 2008 in Justin´s solargraphs in Bristol. It shows the path taken by the sun as it travelled across the sky above the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, UK, between the winter and summer solstices.
According to Telegraph.co.uk and new scientist.com Photographer Justin Quinnell used a pinhole camera made from an empty drinks can with a 0,25mm aperture and strapped it to a telephone mast for pointing at the suspension bridge in Bristol for overlooking the Gorge, where it was left between the winter and summer solstice.
Solargraphs above Bristol can be seen in his exhibition called SLOW LIGHT
Justin is also one of my can assistants and two solargraphs from the Clifton Suspension Bridge can be seen also here in the Global Pinhole Art Project of Solargraphy.
Thanks to Justin about 3000 visits came also onto my website www.solargraphy.com on 15 January 2009 as his solargraph was published as the Astronomy Picture of the Day.
