Unique: Alternative Processes 2019
Photography started as a chemical experiment. However, the acknowledged inventor of the process, Thomas Wedgwood, was the son and grandson of famous English potters. His entire life he was surrounded by artists, creators. Wedgwoods pals were William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. So, it is not unusual or unexpected that creative folks have taken his work and run with it. For many photographers it’s about the camera, for others it’s about what can be birthed once it leaves the thing and for others it is the possibility of making images that are miraculous orphans.
