The Gathering

The numbers of photographers working with wet and dry ambro/ferrotypes is growing by the day. The masters like Coffer and the Osterman’s are filling up their workshop classes faster, and many of their students have started teaching their own workshops. The numbers of those learning on their own is unknown, but they are out there. The disillusionment with sterile digital photography and the continued escalation of discontinued film lines are driving people back into photographic history to find something that fits their visual voice.

Here are a few people that I have discovered on Flickr who are active:
