50 Suns documents the beauty that is left unnoticed in the daily search for success. Photographing the sun for every day for 50 consecutive days, I was interested in documenting the aesthetic beauty of a subject that so uniquely guides human activities and achievements with every moment, and yet is impossible to see with the naked human eye.
Each photograph was taken between noon and sunset between May 18th and July 6th, 2009. The collection highlights the distinct patterns of color that stem from the light, each day slightly differing from the next.
The images depict interrupted moments when I stepped just outside my home in Oakland, CA with my Rolleiflex twin lens reflex camera. The sun's unyielding presence over the 50 days ultimately created a detailed quilt of texture, color and time.
