The Artist – Dry Plate Neg

This is another historical dry plate negative.

A little strange this one. The artist with his back to the camera and collar up, doesn’t seem to want to be recognised.


The three friends/passerbys, two looking towards camera and one looking at a book? Its a really strange set up, almost like it was a grab shot but yet so obviously staged.


Thats what I enjoy with these plates, so much information but so little understanding of whats actually going on.
