Reenacting A Civil War Photographic ProcessDPMag Published in Blog
NBC's Rock Center news program did a wonderful piece the other night on photographer Richard Barnes who uses civil war era photographic techniques to photograph civil war reenactments. With a large format view camera and a wet plate collodion process, Barnes combines the antique look of the reenactments with the thoroughly modern environment in which these events take place. The results are artful and interesting and downright beautiful, and they're as much about the history of photography as they are about the history of the Civil War, and the sociological study of these folks who reenact these events 150 years later. The whole thing is, frankly, fascinating.
