ANDREA CEVOLINI

The Sun

Sun marks time and my prints.
Shooting on large format cameras (from 4x5 up to 16x20 inches), I use vintage b/w silver gelatin photographic papers on my film holders, exposing them for long time, from seconds to many hours.
The light intensified by lens literally burns the emulsion, inverting the latent image to a positive, creating holes and colored scratches.
The indelible traces of the sun on paper remind us how powerful and at the same time wonderful nature is.
I often come back to the same places at different times of the year to create a constant dialogue between sunlight and landscape.
This project allows me to photograph the landscape in somehow unexpected way; to get in touch with legendary enlarging papers and to be warmed by sun and a sense of bliss.
