The perils of photography are never seen in the end result, the print. But for Graham Ward, the flaws and imperfections made from his glass plate negatives only authenticates his photographs and the process it takes to make the final print.
Photography using glass plate negatives takes a technical expertise that is now lost in a world of digital photography. Long days and long nights Graham spent in his studio in order to accomplish a light sensitive emulsion and developer that produces an image on glass. Captured by a handcrafted camera, Graham’s images are a binding relationship between art and science.
