Photography 'Collective' is a term often associated with the the UK-wide group of artists that make up Documenting Britain but Scottish artist, curator and co-founder Alastair Cook also likes to describe it as a broad artistic community.
Brian Carroll met with Alastair in Edinburgh to have a relaxed conversation about Documenting Britain, wet plate and Alastair's many projects in the visual arts here in the UK and Internationally.
See below for a small gallery of Alastair's wet plate collodion tintypes (alumitypes) from his McArthur’s Store series. Images © Alastair Cook. Last artist portrait by Carl Radford.
And here's Alastair's video of 'World Wet Plate Day 2010' mentioned in our conversation: the spark that made him explore the Collodion process for future projects.
