If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

wetplate photography: Denis Roussel « Previous | |Next »
June 18, 2013

Fuzion Magazine No 3 is devoted to wetplate collodion photography. One of the photographers featured is Denis Roussel, who was born in France and now lives in Denver, USA.

His "A collection of somewhat random specimens” is a series specimens of Nature that are mostly ignored or overlooked, due to our focus on the wilderness landscapes.

Roussel says that he was drawn to wet-plate collodion because this method creates marks and artifacts that become an integral part of the photograph. The aesthetic of the collodion process transforms the series from an objective and straightforward documentation of Nature into a lyrical depiction of its beauty.
