Here are three of my collodion plates presented as a triptych. I combined 18th and 19th century processes, in that the original images were medium format transparencies made with a Holga “toy” camera. Each transparency was then projected from a darkroom enlarger onto a prepared collodion plate. The back of each finished plate was painted black and glued to a sheet of black glass, then framed as a single piece.

It’s one of those things that my wife wants taken off the wall when I go on travel.
