Spanish craftsman Jacqueline Roberts swims against the tide, restoring 19-th century photography in the computerized period. Jacqueline’s work generally rotates around the mental and passionate move from youth to pre-adulthood, and the strategy she utilizes additionally heightens the frightfully change, making the pictures look like something you’d find in your bad dreams.

Wet plate photography (otherwise called the collodion procedure), is said to have been imagined in 1851, at the same time, by Frederick Scott Archer and Gustave Le Gray. In spite of the fact that the procedure required a versatile darkroom, it joined alluring characteristics of the calotype procedure (empowering a boundless number of prints from a solitary negative) and the daguerreotype (making a sharpness and lucidity that couldn’t be accomplished with paper negatives). The strategy rapidly turned out to be truly famous and was utilized for representation, scene work, design, and different sorts of photography.

“For me, wet plate photography is an entrancing procedure on such a large number of levels,” Roberts disclosed to Film’s not Dead. “From setting up the science, cutting the glass, flooding the plate, creating and settling to at long last grasping a lovely glass photo. I adore the formal part of it, as much as the specialty included.”

The self-educated craftsman frequently picks kids as her subjects yet for different reasons than the greater part of picture takers. “I can’t help contradicting the normal discernment that considers youngsters to be ‘charming blameless animals’. I discover this idea deigning and manipulative. What I adore about them is their crudeness, their new ignorance, their uncompromising capacity to be as they may be.”

Most likely the best consequence of Jacqueline’s work is her splendid book called Nebula.
