I hate to say it but I am not sure that this photograph are all that good. I've seen a lot of better done wetplate work and if it weren't for the process and the subjects fame nobody would take notice of this work. Still I am glad that Walter Hugo used analogue material. Thanks for the link.
It is my understanding that creating wet plates at 20”x16” inches is quite challenging this would reflect the artefacts on the plates. I guess you have to see them in person to really appreciate them. I think the premise of the show was quite interesting, of all the wet plates on show there is one person who it would be appropriate to call ‘famous’, that is the upcoming actor Eddie Redmayne who featured In ‘ My week with Marylyn'
