Contemplation & Composition
This series of photographs were taken in an abandoned gothic house.
The theme & inspiration for the shoot was abandoned and trapped angels.
Photographed using a 1948 camera and produced on coloured
Perspex 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 “Gothic dread” plates made.
No 1 to be kept by Dave for exhibitions and 9 for sale
Each 200mmx200mm plate comes in a Black presentation along with a hand made Oak display block (crafted by Dave)
Just add light & imagination…
