Adrian Cook began taking photographs using the wet plate collodion process in an effort to recreate the aesthetic qualities and characteristics lost with the demise of film.
In contrast to the manipulation and transience of digital imagery, his practice exploits the unpredictability of this complex alchemical process to produce unique handmade metal and glass plates. These works seek to recall both the restraint and resonance of early tintypes, crafted to honour the occasion and to memorialise. This selection showcases portraits, still life and landscapes.
On select days during the exhibition, Adrian will also be offering wet plate portrait sessions to those interested in experiencing this process. The sessions last 45 minutes and are limited to two people.
