Over Summer 18’ I did an impromptu shoot with , Anton, an Ambrotype photographer ( Also known as amphitype and collodion positive. Tintypes immediate predecessor, introduced in the 1850s). The process of Ambrotype, according to Wikipedia, “When a photograph is made by creating a direct positive on a glass plate coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion (thank you Wikipedia). I didn’t get an opportunity to document Anton’s studio, but it was covered in communist propaganda and photos of communist leaders. There was a curtain Hung, in front of the hallway entrance into his dark room (the fumes from the chemicals were TERRIBLE, as to be expected), that was covered in Silk screen printed photographs of a specific communist leader, a leader that I’m not familiar with. Small round glasses, some freckles here and there, human looking, ring any bells? None here.
