The Lifers Project ist ein wunderbares Sammelsurium von interessanten Menschen, Helden vergangener Tage, Skateboarding, Snowboarding, Fotografie, Natur und und und. Portraitiert werden unter anderem Dustin Klein von Cadence, Danny Way, Steve Berra. Ein richtig gutes Projekt, vor allem wenn man sich etwas für Fotografie interessiert. Man darf gespannt sein wer noch alles vor die Linse gebeten wird.
“Feeling frustrated with the meaninglessness of most digital photography in combination with a desire to make something with my hands, I found the wet collodion process. In February of 2013 I took a class taught by Quinn Jacobson and thereafter we became good friends. I related to Quinn’s philosophy that the collodion process should be used to create something meaningful; he took me under his wing and he became my mentor. While apprenticing at Quinn’s studio in Denver, I invited friend, artist, and skateboarder, Chet Childress, over to show him the process and take his portrait. That day we created the “Madness Triptych” which inspired the Lifers project. It was in making Chet’s triptych that I realized what a perfect medium collodion was for capturing Lifers. With its sensitivity to UV light and long exposure times, wet collodion is believed to have the ability to see beneath the skin, revealing ones soul and character. “
