Silver and Light: A Demonstration of Wet Plate Photography

” Wet plate collodion photography is a 19th century early photographic process where a plate is coated, sensitised, exposed, developed and fixed within a time frame of around 15 minutes. I am drawn to the traditional nature of handcrafting photographs to produce images with a permanent physical presence. Please join me for a demonstration to experience this early photographic process in capturing tintype images from beginning to end.”
