A JOURNEY TO PHOTOGRAPHY’S INFANCY
Señor Archer is a chemical photography studio located in the heart of Barcelona‘s Old Town. Since october 2014 provides portrait sessions using wet plate collodion, a pioneering technique which dates back to the origins of photography itself in mid nineteen century. Halfway between photography and alchemy, this process recalls the values of handmade photography, far from automatisms and bitmaps, with patience and sense.
The plates coming out of our studio look unlike any other picture you can make today. They are a unique and unrepeatable object, born as a result of an artisan process, which you will also experiment with us. They constitute the perfect experience, souvenir, gift…an ephemeral conjunction of silver and light that can last a lifetime.
