The Alternative photographic process is made by a coated plate with Collodion, which is a syrupy solution of nitrocellulose in a mixture of alcohol and ether, then a silver bath is given in order to make it sensitive to light. After the plate has been exposed to light, the developing process, wash and fixer bath are the final steps. The Wet Collodion Process is sensitive to UV light, blue colors will appear with more light and warm colors will appear darker. Faces of different skin color demonstrate the variation of tones and the sensitivity to light.
The conceptual series of The Delicacy of a Culture has been produced with a 19th century alternative process. Which consist in transferring the emulsion of an original polaroid film image to an aluminum plate.
