The Broken Shard
I'm clearing the van out, and found a shard of glass from a day I spent with Sean and his Stereo Wet Collodion Camera. I remember the small glass plate breaking, one half of two images, one adjacent and slightly parallax to to the other
The Darkvan is a traveling darkroom, capable of Ultra large format photography with the Wet Collodion process, with a two birth sleeping quarters to the front.
I was raised outside of cites, in the quiet and still, but amongst machinery, black smithing and wood work.
My father, a horse drawn carriage builder and master joiner/boat builder. has informed my interest and photography has been my practice.
I have worked with a number of Collaborators to make work together on a number of projects, and collaborate on the perceived ideas of photography and film making.
My own pursuits are yet to be seen, as form my own archive.
