Eleven collodion wet plate portraits made with color anodized aluminum. The strobe light was so bright I didn’t want to photograph innocent subjects who might not be careful enough to avoid looking at the 5000 watt seconds of lights when they flashed. So I used the only subject who I trusted – my assistant Nick. They are mounted in a carefully spaced overlapping pattern and stand off the black velvet background in a 18.5″ x 22.5″ frame. Signed, titled and dated on the verso of each plate and the back of the frame – 2012.
