Michelle Kloehn... Untitled (From the series 'Perimeter', 2007, tintype). From Works by Michelle Kloehn. "...In both Centrally Located and Perimeter, I use the wet plate collodion processes of the Ambrotype and Tintype. Due to the nature of the wet plate technique, the working time frame is compressed. I am able to see immediately the images I am creating and progress in response. Similar to the immediacy of a 20th century Polaroid, this 19th century photographic process produces an instant image leaving me with the end product of both image and object."
