Wet Plate Collodion Photography with Lisa Elmaleh Andrew Carroll June 14, 2016 Lisa Elmaleh will teach Wet Plate Collodion Photography during Week 1, July 5-10, 2015. Week 1 is Cajun/Creole and Early Country Music Week. This is an intensive class that dives into the wet plate collodion process that was the leading mode of photography in the 1850s and 1860s. The process is most commonly known in three forms – tintypes (positives on tin), ambrotypes (positives on glass) and glass negatives (negatives on glass). Students will learn all of the basics of the process, including how to safely mix the chemicals. The class will also cover how to build a darkroom and modify a camera. All materials will be supplied. Materials: $100 Lisa Elmaleh’s work is an exploration of America. Using a portable darkroom in the back of her truck, Elmaleh photographs using the nineteenth century wet plate collodion process. Elmaleh is a West Virginia based photographer and educator at the School of Visual Arts and the Center for Alternative Photography. She has been awarded the Aaron Siskind Foundation IPF Grant, PDN’s 30, the Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation Grant, the Tierney Fellowship, and The Everglades National Park Artist Residency. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Elmaleh’s work has appeared in Harper’s Magazine, PDN, and The Oxford American, among others.
