Wet Plates

I have a huge appreciation for artists who are dedicated to reviving nearly extinct techniques, especially in this day and age. Daniel Carrillo is the one of those artists. A photographer and printmaker from Seattle, Daniel has taken over 100 portraits using a mid 19th century photographic process called the wet collodion method. The process is complex, incorporating several steps and requiring the subject to be completely still due to an extremely slow exposure. The outcome, however, is hauntingly beautiful. I encourage you to check out this video that follows the fascinating process from beginning to end!

Evason Ma’In

Evason Ma’In Hot Springs & Six Senses Spa sits in a rocky ravine 864 feet below sea level, just minutes from the Dead Sea, close to Jordan’s capital, Amman, and a couple of hours from Petra (a place I’ve been dying to visit).
