Wet plates (2012)

In the summer of 2012 a friend taught me the process of Wet Plate photography. I had recently acquired an 8"x10" monorail view camera and I was interested in the possibilities of a fully analog process. The work below is not specific, but I think it needs a place to live online! I did a short demo with my former high school photography teacher's Michael Cirelli's class in May of 2012 which is also pictured below in the larger group shot.
