Gary Briechle’s Wet-Plate Meditations (10 Photos)

With great patience and care, Gary Briechle photographs using large-format cameras and the wet-plate collodion process, which forces an intimacy between the photographer and subject. He says of his work: “The tension between the demands of the process and the demands of a moment make each successful image more of a gift given, not so much a photograph taken.” Twin Palms Publishers recently released the book Gary Briechle. The book’s gorgeous prints float in the middle of black pages bringing back that feeling of surprise one gets while watching photographs come to life in a developing tray.
