    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    During this year's Auckland Festival of Photography, photographer Adrian Cook takes his mobile darkroom (a 1950's Bond-wood caravan) to Highwic to craft timeless portraits using the wet plate collodion process, a 19th-century method of development that predates film photography. Each image is hand-crafted, producing an original direct-positive image on a sheet of glass or aluminium plate.

    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.

    On view, will also be Adrian's exhibition TINKERING ABOUTa series of wet plate collodion images recently captured in Australia and New Zealand.
