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.

Near and dear to my heart is Penland school of Arts and Crafts. There is an auction coming up
on March 2nd to help fund the new photography studio. If you can't make it to Chapel Hill , you may bid from your home, with this handy absentee bid form. The entire collection can be seen at the sites below. It is an impressive list photographers all with a connection to Penland.
My work in the auction is this view of Clarendon Landing. It was from my Cape Fear River portfolio shown at the Horace Williams House in Chapel Hill in 2012.
And if in Wilmington, come see my Greenhouse and The Cameron Art Museum, showing until June and 60 new plates coming this week.
