Video: Justin Borucki’s Wet Plate Street Photography

A day shooting on the streets of New York City's Chinatown with Justin Borucki

Watch as photographer Justin Borucki takes to the busy streets of Chinatown with a stash of chemicals, a portable darkroom and a stack of hand-cut glass plates to freeze a moment in time.

Borucki has spent the last year and a half setting up on the streets of the city and using the slow, methodical wet plate collodion process to capture the "old, decrepit and beautiful" New York he remembers from his childhood.
