In the midst of the preparations for the expedition to Spitsbergen, I was experimenting with pinhole camera’s in my backyard in Utrecht. I had talked to the curator of the art exhibition place in the city hall and agreed to displaying my results in the year following the expedition. I realised it would be a great idea to collect a comparison of long exposure solargraphy images from both Spitsbergen and Utrecht. This will give the audience a way to experience the difference of the sun’s track in two places at the same time.

In order to do so I set out to create extreme long exposure images on locations in Utrecht, the city I live. One of the dreamed images I could think of was to present a view from the mayor’s office. The mayor at the time, Jan van Zanen gave his permission to put camera’s in his office looking out over the city and Central Station.
