Wuon Gean Ho
I am not on some strict plan to only shoot local artists. The hell with that!! Every time I meet someone, I can’t help but visualize a portrait of them in collodion. I met Wuon Gean while she was visiting Print Zero and Seattle from London. She has shown at Davidson Galleries and was on her way to Canada to give an artist talk. Her print work is very sensitive and powerful. She seemed very interested in the collodion process so I invited her to sit for a portrait. She was there and watched me shoot a couple of portraits ealier in the week.
Shot with my favorite lens- the Vitax at 4 seconds and wide open. It had been hot in Seattle and this photo was taken on one of the hotter days. The plate started to dry around the edges where the collodion was the thinnest.
