Virgil Eugene Hill "Quicksilver" captured in silver on glass in the wet plate collodion process. A Silver medalist in the 1984 Olympics and five time World Champion. He has his final bout this coming Saturday and I am so proud to have captured these images to commemorate his historic career. The State Historical Society of North Dakota has requested a glass plate for their permanent archive as well. Virgil and I will hand deliver it to them this coming week before his final fight. This man is a champ and gentleman inside and outside of the ring and he said to me before he left "we are now family".
