Wet plate collodion images are made directly onto discarded objects, including cigarette and tobacco tins and rusted cans, in Hidden Within. The images are selected from artist Steve Lovegrove’s collection of found items, both natural and man-made. Each object contains a different image, but all are tied together by the centrality of being rescued by the artist on his travels.
Steve Lovegrove has been a successful photographer for more than 30 years, working with clients in Australia and overseas. Since 2014, he has been transitioning from a commercial practice to full-time arts-based photography. Lovegrove is on a journey to educate himself on wet collodion and other alternative photographic processes.
