(Star Cube 4)


This new series is made with images of star trails taken from the surface of earth. Because of gravity our earth rotates daily, annually we circle the sun and everything else moves along arcs through time and space. Photography is a medium of light offering windows to moments in time far away from where they are seen. Gravity is a consequence of the geometry of spacetime.

The Artifacts of Fire and Wax

June 6, 2013  by Caleb  |  Blog

“There is no better, there is no more open door by which you can enter into the study of natural philosophy than by considering the physical phenomena of a candle. I trust, therefore, I shall not disappoint you in choosing this for my subject rather than any newer topic, which could not be better, were it even so good.”  -Michael Faraday

I hope June is treating you well. My two solo shows in Boston and Chicago have been well received, please read the review!  Now that the shows are up and rolling I’ve had time to return to the darkroom to make some new work with the light and wax from red candles. These new works are made with 4 sheets of 20×16 inch silver gelatin paper. I hope you enjoy them
