All my work is made by using the in 1851 invented wet plate Collodion process. Which means that beside some very minor adjustments no photoshop has been used. So what you see is what you get. All pictures were made with a 12 x 12" wet plate camera combined with hand made antique Petzval lenses. The whole process has to be done on the spot. So from sensitizing the Plate with chemicals and silver nitrate until the final fixing stage. All done in a mobile darkroom.
