Wet plates

Daniel Carrillo wet plate photography

I have a huge appreciation for people who cherish their styles authenticity and artists who are dedicated to reviving old fashioned and nearly extinct techniques. Daniel Carrillo is the one of those artists. A photographer and printmaker from Seattle, Daniel has taken over 100 portraits using a mid 19th century photographic process called the wet collodion method or wet plate process which required the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed within the span of about fifteen minutes. The process is complex, incorporating several steps and requiring the subject to be completely still for a long time due to an extremely slow exposure. The outcome, however, is hauntingly beautiful.
