American artist Noah Doely’s time-consuming method of capturing an image using the ancient wet collodion process really pays off when the final photograph is developed.

Every step of the way, from the concept, to the set design, to working with ambrotypes and tintypes, the process is tenuous and unpredictable. But it results in a physical feel to the photograph, one which just can’t be reproduced any other way. My favourite is The Man on The Moon, which explores our fascination and struggle with the unknown.
