Kristen Hatgi is a Denver-based visual artist with a knack for creating spooky and sensual photos, using a wet plate (collodion) process in her backyard. Hatgi and her husband Mark Sink use this nineteenth century process (though incredibly inconvenient, tedious and unpredictable) to show work with microscopic detail and a haunting modern-meets-ancestral feel.

Siblings, by Deborah Parkin, 2012. Deborah Parkin is a photographer based in rural Northumberland, UK. Deborah has always been fascinated with childhood. In her series Stillness in Time she wanted to photograph children using the wet plate collodion process – a process that requires stillness, the antithesis to the frantic, sometimes pressurized world these children live in. She wanted to record moments of stillness and disengagement from their immediate world.
