"Without A Choice" with Eve Lancaster and Laine Pope, captured in the historic wet plate collodion process of pure silver on glass.

One Twelve Blog on "Without A Choice"

As a nurse and Father of three girls I cannot put words to my immediate concerns. I learned about the horrors of the coat hanger era in nursing school. This will not stand and I have no choice but to address this issue the only way I know how, with art. I could care less who gets upset or does not agree with my stance. Men have no business telling women what to do with their bodies, period.

“Soul” with the one and only Jon Michael Batiste, captured for the first time in the historic 1851 wet plate collodion process of pure silver on glass. Jon recently won an Oscar and has 11 Grammy nominations later this week.

You will not find a more talented and kind human being. While I was preparing the plates, he sang and played the piano for my family. This original plate is earmarked for the Louisiana State Museum where he was born and raised.
