39 Noons is the result of an effort to photograph the sun as the earth moves around it during one day. This day was the 26th of February 2017 at noon in all the 39 time zones that are spread around the earth.

The project consists of 39 A4 images of the sun.
Not all time zones were possible to reach because of political reasons or lag of population.
The “missing” suns have been replaced by correspondence to these places.
This project is made possible by friends and friends of friends, and total strangers found online.
