Feature Shoot Feature

Curated by Alison Zavos Feature Shoot’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, this collection of photos truly captures the bittersweet essence of the nostalgic temperament. All photographs are inherently nostalgic, but those that hit the hardest are those that transform something palpably personal into something undeniably universal. Where general sentimentality applies only to the events that occurred in one’s own life, it’s entirely possible to feel nostalgic for something you never had in the first place. A bite from nostalgia bug cuts deeper than one inflicted by homesickness, because in the end, nostalgia brings with it the knowledge that we can never go backwards. The photographs in this show, however, allow us to do just that, if only for a moment.

Wet Plate Collodion Photography

In 2014 I took a Wet Plate Collodion workshop with the amazing Allan Barnes. The image below is a self-portrait created during that workshop. After several months of collecting equipment and supplies, I'm finally ready to get started on my own. I can't wait to further explore this wonderful process!
