From 2010 to 2012, we've poured every ounce of creativity, from concept to completion, into the production of our 15-piece collodion wet-plate series, "The Flight." A collection of collodion tintypes/ferrotypes, the finale of "The Flight" is presented in the video below to allow you to experience the behind-the-scenes feel of the shoots, the styling, the developing and the sharing of this monumental series inspired by a poem my niece, Carly, wrote.
I give the biggest thanks to the five-person team behind the production of this collection — without them, I could have fulfilled only one aspect of the series: the making of the collodion images themselves. The integrated visions, creative collaboration and constant effort made "The Flight," one of my proudest series yet.
We hope that this video is the springboard to "The Flight's" future in galleries across the U.S. Her first stop will be at Pop Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico this spring.
As "The Flight" makes its rounds in galleries and exhibits across the States, we are simultaneously concepting our next big collodion wet-plate series. Each project we create grows in both scope and production, but it's to further the reach of the beauty of collodion wet-plate photography. Our studio is rooted not in re-enacting the past techniques and styles of collodion wet-plate photography, but in re-inventing the future of how collodion wet-plate photography can co-exist in a digital photography world.
For us, it's the ultimate labor of love for this style of photography that is both elegant and timeless.
We are absolutely excited for our next ultimate wet-plate challenge. Please tell us your thoughts, comments and questions about this fine art.
