Sunburned, GSP#389. Taken at Puget Sound. Photo by Chris McCaw We’ve all heard of burning—or the act of giving a portion of one’s image additional exposure time, whether it be in Photoshop using the funny-shaped hand tool, or in a physical darkroom. Well, photographer Chris McCaw is taking the traditional concept of burning to the extreme. Instead of giving a portion of his prints an increased exposure, he is literally utilizing the sun to physical burn his photographs in a project he calls Sunburn.
