The wet plate collodion process was introduced in the 1850s by Frederick Scott Archer. It involves coating a plate, sensitizing, developing, and fixing, on site and all while the plate is still wet. Exposures are counted in seconds, and the plates are objects, an artifact of an interaction. The images are of exceeding detail and beauty, and are a one of a kind photograph unlike any other.
