I’m currently working with sets of glass plate negatives. This iPhone collage was created with the Blender app from a glass negative purchased in a Paris brocante. The box is labeled: Plaques du Dr D.V. Monckhoven and probably dates from 1905-1910. I love discovering people and stories hidden away for decades, as the images on the plates emerge from negative to positive.
