To create this picture, Bucklow photographed the sun using a multiple pinhole camera constructed from a cardboard box. The apertures, punched out in a pattern, allowed him to make numerous, often thousands, of images simultaneously. Together, like atoms, these tiny images of the sun join to form a larger body--in this case, a luminous human figure, which happens to be the artist himself.
