Do it yourself weekend project – silver bath for Wet Plate Collodion process
Andreas Reh, the legend of naughty nude photography in wetplate collodion process, made a beautiful case for transport of plates. I got inspired and I also made it myself. I showed it to my Grand mother and she said: “Son, don’t compete with Germans, I know we beat them during 2.WW, but we were lucky. If Angela would be on power in our times, we would stand no chance. No chance whatsoever! Don’t push it, dear, don’t push it…”
Ah, my Grandmother, a wale of wisdom! Anyhow, I’m not pushing it, I recognize and bow to German superior perfection, furthermore I feel nostalgic to Austro-Hungarian empire. I guess European Union is a concept that echo the times when empires were ruling Europe. Ah, glorious times that I never had chance to experience. Anyhow this is not watertight case it’s just for transporting and keeping plates perfectly clean.
