Kasia Wozniak - Wet Plate

Kasia Wozniak - Wet Plate

Ffoton talks with Kasia Wozniak during The EYE Festival about her fashion photography using wet plate collodion.

Analogue photography - or for many, the look of analogue photography - continues to gain popularity in both commercial and personal photography. Even with easy access to high resolution digital cameras and smartphones that now yield clean and superb quality images, many photographers will at some time experiment with a filmic look to their images via filters or the borders surrounding them.

London-based photographer Kasia Wozniak specialises in true analogue photography in the form of wet plate collodion - one of the first photography techniques dating back to the middle of the 19th century. Ffoton’s Brian Carroll sat down with her at the recent EYE International Photography Festival 2018 following her presentation to discuss her impressive work and collaborations with designers and brands in the commercial world of fashion photography.

RELICS: Photospheres Exhibit

Since the summer of 2014 visual artist Matt Wright has been travelling across the country capturing 360° viewpoints of Wales’ unique and varied historical landscapes. From these high-resolution images, the artist has created a number of spherical photographic sculptures that are subsequently installed back at their exact point of capture within the environments they document.

Grabbing the opportunity around work commitments and whilst Ffoton's Emyr and Brian are both together for the Laugharne Weekend Festival (10-12 April 2015) - we thought it might be an idea to meet and chat with photographers in the local area on Thursday 9th April.

If you can join us, we'll be in Browns Hotel bar for a few hours from 5.30pm. They also serve tea & coffee if those are you preferred tipple. And if you have a favourite photograph you've taken in the last year, bring along a print as we'll be recording a few special #oneimagelaugharne episodes for the website!
