Martin O’Connor – Wet Plate Collodion Photography in Limerick

3 09 2010

Limerick based photographer Martin O’Connor posted a comment today on a blog post from a while back about Wet Plate Collodion photographer Mark Sink. He also linked to a youtube video that he made just a few days ago shooting on the street in Limerick. This was just so exciting and cool and different that I knew it needed a blog post of its own. How can a process so old seem so new? People were interested in images appearing on the screens of the back of digital cameras and phones 10 years ago, but seeing an image appear on a plate of glass after it has been immersed in baths of chemicals right there on the street is something else again. Well done Martin – would love to see you do this live!
