This April, photographer Adrian Cook takes his mobile darkroom (a 1950's Bond-wood caravan) to the Aratoi, Wairarapa Museum of Art and History to craft timeless portraits using the wet plate collodion process, a 19th century method of development that predates film photography. 

Plates will be posted to clients once varnished & cured, a week or so after their session.

Sessions last 45 minutes and are limited to 2 people per plate
