wet plate photography

I recently have begun to learn how to make photographs using the wet plate collodion method ( ). I can now rest assured that I can continue with my photography even if every single manufacturer of film falls prey to digital pursuits. Here are a few of my first experiments.

It finally feels like spring. Plants are growing. Watching things change daily.

In case you missed it, take a look at the videos of my handmade books that I posted in my last entry.

videos of me discussing my handmade photography books

I've had a lot of interest regarding my handmade books recently. Which is interesting, as there wasn't much interest when I was working on the first one. Maybe that's because I didn't really tell anybody about it. I also realized that I understand these things better as I speak about them. So I decided to make a video.

These were originally one video, but it was too long to upload to Youtube. So I divided into two parts.

part 1 - the black book from 2004/2005

part 2 - the white book, currently in progress

If you are in Washington, make sure to visit the Seattle Erotic Art Festival ( ) this weekend to see two of my photographs. And a ton of work by a ton of other artists.
