My friend, Peter Forss, and I went to a photo gallery, Rule Gallery, last week to see a large selection of collodion wet plates by Mark Sink (with examples here). Sink’s wet plates are absolutely exraordinary and actually give you a sense that they were taken in the 19th century, for the most part.

As we were leaving the gallery, Peter stopped to inspect the “snowflakes” in the window. My intent was not just taking a photo of Peter but of the buildings across the street. And then this woman strolled passed outside on the sidewalk and just happened to look in the window, presumably at Peter.
