I am a Polish female photographer, working with wet plate collodion technique. I make positive and negative ambrotypes. I love traditional darkroom processing techniques and shots in daylight using a large format camera, also processed in portable darkroom conditions. Ambototypes was made on glass using by large format camera Mentor Panorama dimensions 18cmx24cm and Large Format Kodak View Camera 6x8" I focus on the portraits as well as nudes, portraing the desire of woman (but not only), mystery, secret and hidden dark soul and also nature.
