Photography in science seeks to become transparent. The specimen becomes the only subject. The only objective truth. We pretend that the scientist does not exist. In reality the act of photographing is subjective, always. These wet plate collodion images (8X10) are a collision of the scientific and the chaotic. The unpredictable chemistry and hand of the scientist/artist reveal the truth of subjectivity.
