This Israeli Photographer Takes Pictures the 19th Century Way



Edward Kaprov, an Israeli photographer, with two decades experience, has in recent years been taking pictures using the mid-19th century collodion wet plate process. The technique entails coating a glass plate in liquid substances, fixing it in the camera, exposing it to the subject of the shot for a few seconds and then developing it - all within 10-15 minutes, before the glass dries.
