Baku Analemma


  One full year of solar motion is captured in this multi-exposure analemma image from shore of the Caspian Sea in Baku, Azerbaijan.
  
  Image by Tunc Tezel
  
  Analemma is the figure “8” loop that results when one observes the position of the sun at the same time of day over the course of a year. The 23.5° tilt of the earth’s axis of rotation and its elliptical orbit about the sun result in the apparent change in the sun’s location in the sky when observed at the same location at the same time of day over a year’s time.
  
  For this image the photos are all made during the local noon. The highest point shows the sun near the day of Summer Solstice (June 21) and the lowest marks the shortest days near the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21).

Work in progress project for class. Need to change the signature stamp, it’s just a placeholder. Mixing Islamic art influences with graffiti and urban influences.

I’ve always been fascinated with the conflict between history/traditions and the new generation. Some say that the next generation of youths has something new and wonderful to bring, some say new ideas cultures deface and ruin history and our foundations, and some just believe it’s a natural order of things and should be allowed to just let happen. I like that we challenge our existence and where it goes. It’s powerful and terribly beautiful.
