Ambrotypes: Photographs on Glass – NEW!

Explore the magic of analog photography and create one-of-a kind photographic objects by hand! In this workshop we will learn one of the first photographic processes, wet-plate collodion, by creating images on glass, using silver and light. Considered by many to be the polaroid of the 19th century, this process involves hand poured chemistry and produces images almost instantaneously. Learn to use a large format camera and create new heirlooms.

About the Instructor

Emily White

I am a photographer and educator, focusing in historic photographic processes. I work with medium and large format film, as well as create negatives using the wet-plate collodion process. Frequently, I can be found setting up my mobile darkroom along bucolic back roads and hazy riverbeds, working with my hands and light to capture a disappearing reality. As an artist, my work is greatly influenced by the land I come from, a place of impenetrable growth and dark tunnels of kudzu. I use historic photographic processes to capture contemporary subjects and I have a portrait studio here in Richmond where I enjoy collaborating and creating with members of our community.
