Large Format Film Photography by Lisa Elmaleh

In Inspiration, Photography by AbbieMay0 Comments

West Virginia and New york City based photographer Lisa Elmaleh specializes in large format film photography. Her darkroom is in the trunk of her 1996 Toyota Tercel and all of her photographs are 8 x 10" in tintype, glass negative and celluloid film. Below is her most recent project titled 'Everglades'.

As a native of South Florida, the Everglades is an ecosystem that has shaped my own history. Inspired by the early photographers of the American west, I have documented the flora and fauna of the Everglades and the surrounding natural areas using my large format 8″x10″ camera and the wet collodion process, a nineteenth century process requiring the image be exposed and developed on site. The collodion process renders light slowly and reveals the passing of time, a quality which is essential to my work.
