GALLERY TO HOST WORLD WETPLATE PHOTOGRAPHIC DAY, MAY lst
Take some time out on Sunday May lst to watch Pittwater photographer
Chuck Bradley produce Black Glass Ambrotypes using his precious 1890
Lancaster & Sons wooden camera, complete with black cloth. The
Wet Plate Collodion process was invented in 1851 by Englishman,
Frederick Scott Archer. If you look at the photograph of ‘Lauren’ which
accompanies this article, you will recognize the type of image the
process generates. It’s unlike any digital process you see today. The
process is achieved by coating a piece of black glass with Collodion,
then soaking the coated plate in a silver bath. Once sensitize the
plate is inserted in plate holder then exposed then process.
You’ll be able to watch Chuck as he goes through the whole process on
the deck of the Gone Fishing Gallery, 1858 Pittwater Road, Church
Point. He will be there all day, taking wet plate pictures of a few of
the ‘locals’ and showing just how the process works. Don’t miss it!
Have a cup of coffee at the Waterfront Café, and go and see the latest
work in the Gallery.
Tracy Smith will be the feature artist with an entire wall devoted to
her work. You will be able to talk with Tracy about how she works, and
look at her recent work, beautiful sculptures and frescos, as well as
her wonderful paintings. It’ll be a great day in the Gone Fishing
Gallery, so make a point of seeing it, Sunday May lst, at 1858
Pittwater Road, Church Point, right next to the Church Point Ferry
