Wet Plate Collodion: Rich

Wet plate collodion image of alt-country singer-songwriter Rich Webb.
Shot on a Svedofsky large format field camera on an 8x10” aluminium plate using the mid-1850s ‘tintype’ process. The plate is hand-coated with liquid collodion and submerged in silver nitrate. The sensitized plate is loaded into the camera for a single exposure and is immediately developed while still wet. Each shot takes 15-20 minutes to execute.
This image was used by Rich for the cover art of his single ‘Me and My Horse Trigger’, a song about nostalgia and people wanting to revisit an imagined simpler time in the past.
