    Someone mentioned that her exhibit included huge inkjet prints from scans of her ambrotypes/tintypes. I haven't attended one of her exhibits so I can't say for sure. But I do see some of her prints labeled silver gel and varnish so it very well could be glass plate negatives were used or digital negatives from scans of her plates.

    Most of the prints in her exhibit “What remains” are huge. In one segment of the documentary she uses a rather large enlarger and appears to be printing from glass plates.

    Well, it gives me a reason to look at the film again.

    She doesn't do any digital processing. She uses an 8x10 wet plate camera to shoot collodion glass plates and then an 8x10 enlarger to make very large prints on Ilford paper, which she varnishes and frames.

    ...then you might enjoy watching a short segment in the BBC "Genius of Photography" doc, last of the series, showing her working with the collodion process, you should be able to find it on youtube I expect.

    In the movie you can see her dodging a portion of a large print using her arm as a dodging tool. That particular image was from a collodion glass negative. Early in the documentary she is shooting with an 8x10 and film. I believe that the up close portraits of her children's faces that were displayed as part of the What Remains show were actually 11x14 glass plate negatives contact printed.
