Peter Happel Christian's "Long Nights, Long Days"
Peter Happel Christian, Long Nights, Long Days
From Peter's website:
"Two packages of 11"x14" black and white photographic paper bound with twine and placed in my backyard in Minnesota during opposite seasons of 2012. The dark bundle, Long Nights, recorded the entire duration of winter beginning on December 22, 2011 and ending on March 19, 2012. Long Nights was removed from its protective packaging under natural light and was left to fog in the weather. The light bundle, Long Days, recorded the entire duration of summer beginning on June 20, 2012 and ending on September 21, 2012. Long Days was opened in a darkroom and processed through a fixer bath, rendering the silver particles inert to natural light, preserving the white of the paper base."
