Foto Come una Volta
At the beginning of 2020, with the photographic collective Foto Come una Volta, we set ourselves the goal of participating in many initiatives and events, organizing live demonstrations and wet collodion workshops around Italy. We wanted and want to bring this ancient technique to the attention of the public since in Italy it is almost unknown.
As we all know, the Covid 19 has beaten and is still beating hard. Unfortunately, therefore, all the activities planned with the collective Foto Come una Volta have been drastically interrupted while waiting for better times.
However, this interview is a tangible demonstration of the great potential put into the field and that we will soon have again the opportunity to present our projects to the public.
We talked about DIY optical benches, vintage lenses, the chemistry but mostly about how to get into the wonderful world of wet collodion and what you need at first.
