These Sunrise and Sunset photographs have been formed by the very image they depict. Photographic paper was manually presented and exposed to the sunrise and sunset for approximately three seconds, thus instigating its creation and simultaneously capturing the unadulterated sunrise and sunset. Resulting in photographs, which extend beyond an image and embody the events themselves and their own creation.
