Foursquare – „Wet Plate“ project

The 2012 website is live. The new season has started. What is left to do? To do some sick creative projects! Foursquare kicks off their Wet Plate project  – a pioneering photographic journey into snowboarding featuring first of its kind action imagery and a corresponding video project that is sure to impress.

“This was a project that was going to defy all the rules, the same way snowboarding started,” says Wetplate Photographer Ian Ruhter. “I was determined and set out to do what was deemed the impossible.” The process of making a Wetplate Collodion photo has to be done on location, which requires a makeshift laboratory. Each image is then created by mixing Collodion, iodizes, bromides, ether, alcohol, silver nitrate, ferrous sulfate, and acids while applying them to a metal or glass plate. The final product is a one-of-a-kind original that cannot be matched by any other photographic process of our day.

The Process consists of a 5 video gathering, of which you can watch the first two edits featuring Andreas Wiig and Alek Oestreng, right here. Stay tuned to find here on ShredOn Mag, the other three ones left, when getting dropped soon.
