Adrian Cook is an award-winning portrait and documentary photographer. Uninspired by the predictability and monotony of digital photography, he began taking photographs using the wet plate collodion process in an effort to recreate the aesthetic qualities and characteristics lost with the demise of film. He now works on personal projects and advertising campaigns using wet plate techniques, both in the studio and on-the-road from his mobile darkroom.
