[DANIEL CARRILLO] Wet Plate Photography.
As if photography wasn’t addicting enough. Imagine “photographic crack”. Dan Carrillo practices a form of photography that started over a hundred years ago. Before film, before the polaroid…
Daniel Carrillo is a self-taught mezzotint artist and photographer. Born in Mexico and raised in California, he moved to Seattle in 1997. He has been printmaking for five years and shooting since high school. His work has been exhibited in Davidson Galleries, Gallery 110, Sev Shoon, CoCA , Shenzhen, China, Some Space,, Gage Academy, SOIL and included in several juried exhibitions. He is currently photographing members of the Seattle area arts community using the wet collodion method invented in 1850. It’s called Wet Plate photography…and it’s incredibly fascinating.
Before we take you to the season finale next week, we wanted to pay tribute to one of the amazing processes invented by talented artists when photography first began. Dan takes us step by step to show us the lighting, the shutter speed, the equipment and even the chemicals as he photographs our host, Melissa.
