S. Gayle Stevens is an award-winning contemporary
photographer who has practiced and taught antiquarian
photographic processes for 15 years. Her presentation is on the
wet plate collodion process, developed in 1851. This process
combined the sharpness of the daguerreotype with the capacity to
make multiple prints with the original calotype process.
Using a modified Holga, she produces
small wet plate tintypes. Gayle will give a brief
history of the wet plate process and the work she produces with it.
This lecture is free and open to the
public, and will be held at 7:00 PM at the CPM Studio located at
303 S. Paterson Street in Madison.
