Long Nights, Long Days, draws its title from a pair of bound stacks of black and white photographic paper that Happel Christian placed in his backyard in Minnesota during different seasons of 2012. One bundle, Long Nights, was removed from its packaging in the artist’s backyard, recorded the entire duration of winter beginning on December 22, 2011 and ending on March 19, 2012. The second bundle, Long Days, was opened in a darkroom and processed through a fixer bath first, recorded the entire duration of summer beginning on June 20, 2012 and ending on September 21, 2012.
