Contemplation & Composition
This series of photographs were taken in “the Lane” outside Dave’s Cambridge studio.
The theme & inspiration for these photo shoots is the beauty of the models cradled by the arching beauty of the trees throughout the seasons (4 degrees on this shoot)
Photographed using a 1948 camera and produced on glass plate using the 1851 Wet Plate Collodion process
These photographs & plates are produced by Dave in his darkroom using entirely traditional analog techniques involving the alchemy of Ether and Silver Nitrate
Each plate is unique and individual with its own beautiful Wet plate collodion plate edge swirls and movement.
There will be a limited edition of just 10 “The Lane 1” plates made.
No 1 to be kept by Dave for exhibitions and 9 for sale
Each plate comes in a Black presentation along with a hand made Oak display block (crafted by Dave)
Just add light & imagination…
