Contemplation & Composition
This piece was constructed (grew or born) in my Cambridge studio.
Confusion, fantasy and longing at the ball…
Photographed using a 1948 camera and produced on red 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 “Masquerade Ball 2” plates made.
No 1 to be kept by Dave for exhibitions and 9 for sale
Each 200x200x3mm plate comes in a Black presentation
These plates are 10mm thick and self-standing
Just add light & imagination…
