The Mirror Stage (NSFW)

02.03.2016

Photographer Zelko Nedic uses the antiquarian process called wet plate collodion which involves fashioning a direct positive of an image onto a sheet of metal. Zelko then adds his own twist by hand coloring each plate individually: “My work mirrors back to us, our own lives… I rebuild the narrative and although the reality is not the same, having been broken, the reflection is a different kind of beautiful.”

Come and peer through the looking glass with Zelko...

Zelko states: “What I’m going to show you here are not just mechanical records, but final objects, representing the interaction between such records and myself.”
