| Dramatic images of the sun, as spectacular as an eclipse
Hans-Christian Schink (*1961 in Erfurt) employs an effect called “real solarization” in his series 1 h. Negative film can only be exposed to a certain point, for if one tries to continue the exposure later, the photochemical process is reversed and the darkest points in the negative become light again. This special process was first described by photography pioneer William Henry Jackson in 1857; for Schink, a 1955 picture by Minor White titled Black Sun was a source of inspiration. For 1 h, he deliberately chose to use the real solarization process combined with an extremely long exposure time. Due to the earth’s motion, the sun looks like a black streak in the sky. Thus, by applying classic photographic means, Schink manages to achieve novel, singular images. In 2008 he received the distinguished ING Real Photography award for this series. Exhibition schedule: Oberösterreichisches Landesmuseum, Linz, November 11, 2010–January 11, 2011 | Kunstmuseum Dieselkraftwerk, Cottbus, January 1–March 27, 2011 | Neues Museum, Weimar, April 8–June 13, 2011 | Galerie Rothamel, Erfurt, September 4–July 2, 2011 | Angermuseum, Erfurt, April 9–June 5, 2011 | Museum Küppersmühle, Duisburg, July 1–October 3, 2011 | Galerie Rothamel, Franfurt, September 2–October 22, 2011
