Wet plate photos by visual artist Kristen Hatgi

Kristen Hatgi is a Denver-based visual artist with a knack for creating spooky and sensual photos, using a wet plate (collodion) process in her backyard. Hatgi and her husband Mark Sink use this nineteenth century process (though incredibly inconvenient, tedious and unpredictable) to show work with microscopic detail and a haunting modern-meets-ancestral feel.
