Wet plate collodion photographs made in 2007 and 2008.

I wanted to use the wet plate process to create an illusion of history. So I made this faked family tree or »genealogy«, and certain elements in the images reveal the illusion. Sneakers, rangefinder cameras, funny hats. The people in the pictures are my parents, my girlfriend and some of my close friends. And me of course. The show was very well received and it was a lot of fun.
