Emerge from the Aether is a collection of wet plate collodion images comprised of portraits and still lifes Dan Herrera has made over the past three years. In an age of megapixels, camera phones, and a perpetual stream of digital images, Dan’s exhibit invites the viewer to slow down and experience storytelling within the scope of historical photographic printing methods to a time when photography was still in its infancy. This approach to slowing down and having his hand present in all stage of the process produces unique prints that are both rich in content and physical surface quality, blurring the lines between photographic realism and painterly illusion. The aesthetics of working this way are used as a means to absorb the viewer in a narrative futuristic and nostalgic.
