Human Silhouettes Created With 25,000 Pinholes Photos Of The Sun
UK based Photographer Chris Bucklow does the most amazing thing with aluminum foil.
After charting a life sized human silhouette on the foil, Chris places it as the front element of a huge camera pointing towards the sky, and exposed for about one second.
The back of the camera is a photo-sensitive paper.
Here is the interesting bit, the pinholes each produce a small image of the sun's disc... 25,000 suns onto the photo paper. So the pinholes are NOT making little pictures of the holes, they are acting as lenses to each photograph the sun in the sky. 25,000 suns is one per day if you live to be 70.
According to Chris,
"the end product is a photo of the sky with thousands of suns in it in the shape of a human constellation.
Each photograph is unique - the actual sheet of paper that becomes the artwork on the wall was in the giant camera at the moment of the exposure. There is no negative. No enlargement."

P.S. if 25,000 pinholes is too much, try this camera with only 25 Pinholes.
