When it comes to making the art you want to make, you’re not going to let a little thing like a lack of materials and space get in your way.
That’s exactly how photographer Paul Alsop feels when it comes to creating his photos.
He deals in traditional photography, specifically in an antique process known as wet collodion, which uses metal plates and a variety of liquid chemicals to produce a print.
But living in New Zealand makes this process hard, as everything has to be imported. Living in a cramped house with roommates doesn’t make it any easier…
So what’s a photographer dedicated to the ways of the past to do?
Well, like many others looking for something that didn’t yet exist, he went the DIY route with a vintage trailer caravan from the 1970s.
But instead of turning it into a home, he turned it into his own mobile darkroom!
Check out how the Rubylith, as it’s known, turned out, and check out some of Paul’s vintage-process photos, too!
