The Collodion process is an early photographic process invented in 1851, an intricate process which required the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed within the span of about fifteen minutes. During the civil war, it was the only choice for documenting the war and life at that time. Despite its shooting disadvantages and its laborious technique, its aesthetic qualities with imperfections define the mood and style of my photography that’s grounded in the historical, physical qualities of photography.

It’s a moving process where anything can happen! Scratches, erosion, pitting, stains can appear and disappear in a magical way. All these parameters interplay between clarity, strangeness, dreaminess, wildness bringing some mystery to the images and the perfect reflection of The Beguiled’s story. The photography themselves are tintype (metal plate), large format 8x10 inches. 📷: Wet Collodion Photography by Sophie Caretta
