Have you ever wondered how pictures were made back in the 19th century?
It's not maybe what you think of before going to bed, but seeing it is a unique experience. In my studio located in Barcelona, one of the really few in Europe open to the public, you can live and gift the experience of the wetplate collodion, a completely artisanal technique from the mixing of the chemistry to the preparation of the plate where you'll be immortalized for centuries.
Pure silver on glass or metal, like the fathers of our great-grandfathers, now.
In a moment when billions of pictures are uploaded on social networks everyday, do we know how many memories will remain? How many of us have lovingly kept our images into an album in the past years?
Going back to the essence of slow chemical photography, let us come back to the idea of an image that will live for decades, even centuries. Those few images our grandchildren will still keep.
