Living photographic history

The BSC Graphic Design and Communications sophomores spent the morning hanging out with Shane Balkowitsch.

Balkowitsch’s hobby is wet plate photography, a technique that is only practiced by a handful of people today. The process is difficult, expensive and antiquated, but it is still amazing to watch more than a 130 years after it has been replaced. The images are shot on glass and have an amazing, almost 3D quality to them.
