dry plate

An experiment to take me back to a 'one shot' method. Photographed on hand made glass plate negatives with an old Russian 18x24 cm field camera, and printed on fb classic ilford paper. A technique referred to as 'dry plate'. All the wrinkles, scratches and stripes are the result of the emulsion letting go of the glass plate during developement, and re-attaching during the drying. It was an unexpected, beautiful side effect of the hand made negatives.
