I had the true honor of capturing our very own Monsignor Shea from the University of Mary in the wet plate collodion process. The main goal for the shoot was to have one of the plates make its way to the archive at the Historical Society of North Dakota. We made good on that goal. On October 29th, the Heritage Center took possession of the plate entitled simply "Monsignor", a black 8x10" ambrotype. We made four plates total that day, one for the Historical Society, one for Monsignor's personal collection, one for my collection and one was donated to the faculty and students of his beloved college.
