sun selfies

During an artist residency in Örnsköldsvik (Sweden) Eva-Maria Raab created „cyanotypes“ – an old photographic printing process. A positive image can be produced by exposing it to a source of ultraviolet light (such as sunlight!) through a contact negative. She took various pictures of the sun and then let the sun itself create her picture of itself. These "sun selfies" catch the ephemeral phenomenon of light.
