Here are a few of the sun prints that I made last week. There is one print for each of the fifty L.A. Darling Co. mannequins used in the March 17, 1953 Annie Test at Yucca Flat. I am investigating ways to represent damage, disappearance, shadow, and trace, as well as a feeling of irradiation.

Clever use of the sun–very dramatic!! –M
delicate, theatrical, haunting and quite exquisite really.
eerily wonderful or wonderfully eerie? either way, it works.
Thanks Connie! (and thanks for the references at UMd College Park. The Archives II facility is nearby. I will be returning, possibly January.)
