Ambrotypes, is a project built from exploration. The Wet Plate Collodion process has intrigued many, but few have attempted this early form of photography. I am interested in the object that is the Ambrotype, it is simultaneously both a positive and a negative. To see the positive image requires the audience to view the image on a dark background. There is a magic that exists with any first generation image, meaning an image that is made straight from the recording device, however the ambrotype is able to suspend all photographic disbelief. The silver suspended on glass provides an entrancing visual dance of skin like textures intertwined with metallic reflections.
