Jody Ake

Jody Ake (ジョディ・エイク)
NY を拠点に活動している写真家。
大判サイズのカメラと昔ながらのテクニックで、 ポートレート、ヌード、静物、そしてランドスケープを撮影している。

Jody Ake creates portraits, nudes, still lifes and landscape images
using the wet collodion process,an historic photographic technique which
involves using a large format camera and glass plates.

Invented in 1851, the method entails coating a glass plate with collodion
and exposing the plate while it is still wet. The end result are ambrotypes,
appearing on glass in the form of a negative until backed by
black velvet, thus rendering the positive image.

Ake is one of a handful of contemporary artists who have revived
this photographic method, hand-mixing all of the necessary chemicals
for each and every exposure.
