Synopsis: Gary Briechle makes portraits of his family and friends in the small towns and rugged terrain that hug the Maine coast. Briechle photographs using large-format cameras and the wet-plate collodion process. He works with a portable darkroom on location in the driveways, living rooms and backyards of his subjects, deliberately forgoing the predictability of the studio. When making a photograph he hopes for an image, which is something other than he intended. He says of his work: the tension between the demands of the process and the demands of the moment make each successful image more a gift given, not a photograph taken.

About the Author: Having been a sculptor for many years, Gary Briechle has an appreciation for surfaces and materials. His non-photographic work can be found in the Jersey City Museum, The Hunterdon Museum of Art, and the New Jersey State Museum. Briechle has been working with photography for 13 years but continues to be drawn to textures and much of his photographic work, layers the intricacies of skin with the blemishes inherent to wet-plate collodion.

Book Description Twin Palms Publishing,U.S., United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The rocky coast of Maine is where Briechle found himself driven to make pictures, using the wet-plate collodion process, of the individuals who constitute his stand-in family. I ve been in Maine close to eight years now and there are some people I ve photographed for the entire time. A few have died and I ve shot their likenesses tattooed on the chests of those they ve left behind. The last time I photographed Arizona (an eight year-old girl that I ve been photographing since she was one) I did what I always do: I taped a black Wal-mart sheet to the house, set the camera up on the tripod and got her to lean back with shoulders touching to steady herself. I usually put a little flower by the lens, so she can fix her eyes on something during the fifteen-second exposure. This time, the end of October, it was a small, bright, red leaf. A minute later, as I poured fixer over the glass, an image appeared out of a swirl of watery blue-green. Even though I had done this countless times before, what I saw was an image I never saw before. Seller Inventory # ART9781931885898
