My Brother Minos on Collodion Again
I think I made my most beautiful portrait on collodion of him, not long after I started working with the process at home. Today, 4 years later, I finally was able to get him in front of my lens again, on his on request. The first image I wanted to fit in the series I made two days ago of my mother, grandmother and myself. The next I wanted him to wear headphones as he’s into music (like my other brother) and kind of turned into his own world, which means a significant part of him. One plate is not sharp, it’s the second, and severely damaged because of the too often reusing, but I still like it and it quite captures his personality for me.
They are all 8×10″ black glass ambrotypes and I hope you enjoy them.
