flowterFLOW is not uncharted territory, but looks interesting as photographs.

Phil Nesmith’s “Flow” - a collection of nearly two dozen photographs of this year’s BP oil spill - is an unusual example of hyper-current imagery & positively ancient technology. Nesmith uses the wet-plate collodion method. His rationale for employing the process-it was the standard photographic technique at the time oil was discovered in the U.S. in the 1850s.
