The Collodion Collective

Wednesday 31 May 2017 - Sunday 25 June 2017

Wet plate collodion is one of photography’s earliest processes, flourishing for few decades in the mid-19th century. Requiring the creation and development of large format glass or metal photographic plates “on-site”, its temperamental chemistry, fine grain and beautiful image quality is again being rediscovered by a small band of kiwi photographers. Utilising roughly equal quantities of faith and skill our “Collodion Collective” have been sharing ideas, discoveries and formulae with each other as we each make our personal collodion journey. For the first time, we are putting on a group show of our work showing a range of tintypes, black glass ambrotypes and large format prints.
