What people, especially in skateboarding have really gravitated to is it’s handmade, it’s me making it—if I mess up, if I put my finger on there, that’s there. In the picture of Chet, in the triptych, there are two from that day that are in focus, the third one was accidentally out of focus so then I let him just etch in the emulsion while it was soft with a screw. Sometimes I’m driving around with this stuff and I’m like, what am I even doing, it’s a huge pain in the ass. It’s six, seven boxes, and my camera, it’s a lot of chemistry and maintenance and it’s expensive, but people see the level of commitment that I have to my craft, photography and then also to skateboarding and they relate to both of those things. They relate to the handmade aspect. When you see me do it, anybody who sees it, sees the struggle, you see the amount of stuff, you see what it takes, you see the dedication behind it. The images themselves, collodion is just a beautiful format because it is grain less. Beyond the fact that it sees below the skin and it’s handmade, it is actually sharper then any other image on the planet, really. It’s crystal clear because it is made of silver.
