For our 2019 calendar, we worked with a single photographer, Francesco Mastalia, who uses a very unique photographic technique. The photographs were taken using the wet-collodion process, a photographic technique dating back to the 1850’s. This labor-intensive craft requires each step be performed by hand. With the use of a large format wooden camera and antique brass lens, glass plates are hand-coated to produce one-of-a-kind images. When the light-sensitive chemicals absorb the sun’s ultraviolet rays we enter a mysterious world where art and alchemy meet. For more information, please visit www.francescomastalia.com.
