Through generous support and interest in Abington's culture and art, Cary Street Partners invited me to the Virginia Highlands Festival. I judged a Photography show and lectured on my work in historic processes and demonstrated the Wet Plate Collodion process with the help of my new friend Bruce "Amodel"Large. Who supplied the shots of me at work.
That's Hannah behind the camera, she won the peoples choice award and dang nearly won the show, all at age 14. She's cool.
Me on the shutter, Bruce looking real, and a modern "Photographic Van" in sunset orange, between us.
I finished the day with a trail run in the afternoon rain.
That happens a lot lately.
Visit southwest Virginia if you can.
By the way, its the land of O Winston Link...

photograph Ivan, son of Buzzy Trent of Makaha. Serious big deal for me. Thank you TSJ, Alaric and most of all to
Ivan who jumped in 40 degree water for a tintype. One of my best days as a Surfer and a photographer.

of the war. Aside from some fine tuning, it's finished. The project stems from the urban myth of Mathew Brady's plates ending up as green house glass, which of course, there is no evidence this ever happened.
Here is a selection of plates, but as you know the beauty of an Ambrotype is when you see it with your own eyes. All plates are from the stories and legends of the lower Cape Fear during the war years of 1861-1865 created in the winter of 2014.
Special thanks to the Cameron Art Museum, a wonderful art museum on a Civil War Battle Field. Plus they believed in me and helped this happen. And thanks to all the reenactors who make it really fun to shoot wetplate in the woods. Much more to follow.
Mark your calendars, there will be a closing gallery talk and special guest on June 1st.
