Jody Ake uses a historic photographic technique called wet collodion process.


From his website :

“Invented in 1851, the method entails coating a glass plate with collodion
and exposing the plate while it is still wet. The end result are ambrotypes,
appearing on glass in the form of a negative until backed by
black velvet, thus rendering the positive image.”


I think these are stunning. I am happy to see people keeping these historic techniques alive in the age of digital. What do you think?

  1. Wow these are gorgeous. It makes the eyes jump out. My favorites are the 1st one. When I first saw that I was kind of shocked–a vintage, very slick, mohawk! And the last one of the girl. Great find!
