Luther Gerlach demonstration

Luther Gerlach has been working in historical processes and technologies for the past 30 years and has given over 200 lectures and demonstrations at the J Paul Getty Center. In conjunction with his mammoth plate ambrotypes and tintypes featured in the David Richard Gallery's Past is Present show, Gerlach will be leading wet plate collodion demonstrations on site. He will be driving his customized traveling-darkroom bus from California, packed with rare cameras and lenses. Some of the cameras are historical, others have been built by Gerlach himself to fit his particular artistic vision. Come and see this magical process in action: large glass plates, coated in light sensitive chemicals, reveal the finest grain images in the history of photography. Wet plate collodion is a process rich in history and contemporary applications and significance in today's image saturated world.
