Wet plate collodion images made with an emulsion of pure silver on aluminium plate. 49 idividually exposed plates of mixed subjects-animals, insects, plants and man made objects

The wet plate collodion process dates from 1851 credited to Frederick Scott Archer. It requires the photographic base, commonly glass or tin, to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed before the wet emulsion begins to dry, usually within a span of about 10-15 minutes. By the nature of this hand created process each plate is unique and cannot be exactly duplicated.Abstract image created from the chemical reaction of silver nitrate in wet collodion and light exposure.
