When I first began attempting the wet plate process, friend and amazing artist Kurt Sorensen was just moving into this process having previously been working with medium or large format film to create evocative dreamlike landscapes, steeped in Australian colonial history.
Quite often I have found myself ringing Kurt to ask if he has experienced the same traumatic stuff ups I have – such as no image turning out at all. As it turns out he has.
This is a strikingly honest interview I did with Kurt about his foray into the wet plate process and the accompanying trials and tribulations (of which there are always many)
