The world we live in today with its digital cameras and iPhones, everyone is a photographer, I find that photography is losing its artistic vision and beauty. As a photographer and a photography collector, I often find myself obsessed with old cameras and old techniques. I like to challenge myself by trying new cameras and new ideas using the amazing history of photography. I find myself using my digital camera only for work these days and otherwise working strictly with vintage cameras and film.
This series “Vices” was photographed with a wet plate collodion process that I feel illustrated the magical innocence of youth alongside the darker recesses of human nature. A vintage perspective on childhood, punishments with a little humor.
