This week we sit down with the Alchemistress herself Lindsey Ross to talk about wet plate photography and the hustle of making a living in a sped up digital era with a slowed down vintage process. Lindsey talks about growing up in Ohio and the influence that an early education in art and photography had on the outcome of her life. Although she walked away from it to study religion in college, it soon caught up to her again as she traveled west and found a new life and calling in the mountains working as a photojournalist. Lindsey tells stories of living on an idyllic ranch with her boyfriend and his parents and the eventual move to Wyoming that would kickstart her photographic career. She would later relocate to California to attend Brooks institute and earn her MFA. It was there that she would meet her mentor and become fascinated with the wet plate collodion process. During this conversation I get to ask how Lindsey has carved out a living for herself in this digital dominated industry with such an old technique, what's it like preparing a body of work for a gallery show, shooting portraits with a slow and cumbersome camera, the music that keeps her going in the studio, and the inspiration she finds in nature. So enjoy this conversation with Lindsey Ross.
