I like to make photographs...ones that are a bit fuzzy around the edges.

Modern Technology has made it possible to capture and share images with the tap of a finger. The questionable longevity of these images led me to film as a way of creating durable physical images. I will not abandon film, but I am now rethinking what it means to be an analog photographer in 2015. My answer is to work in wet-plate collodion, a process that was seen as cutting edge in 1851, and ironically considered an alternative process today. The method requires skill, patience & flexible expectations of what can be captured. The limitations are balanced with durability, uniqueness and presence. I am part of a movement to slow down the pace and resurrect the skills and craftsmanship of the past, returning to handcrafted photography - a practice born from pure light and chemistry.
