Everyday when the sun crosses over in the sky, the sunlight track is marked on the photo paper. As the "pinhole" on the camera is so small and the photo paper is in a very low ISO rate, the exposure time can be from several months up to 1 year. Every image in the show had been exposured up to 2 months.
