L E N S C R A T C H: Jody Ake

L E N S C R A T C H: Jody Ake | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Jody creates portraits, nudes, still lifes and landscape images using the wet collodion processs. Invented in 1851, the method entails coating a glass plate with collodion and exposing the plate while it is still wet. The end results are ambrotypes, appearing on glass in the form of a negative until backed by black velvet, thus rendering the positive image.
