 Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, captured for the first time in the historic wet plate collodion process of pure silver on glass.

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson was a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, a clinical psychologist and the author of the multi-million copy bestseller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, the #1 nonfiction book of 2018 in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. It has been published in over 50 languages and has received worldwide acclaim.

His daughter Mikhaila arranged for me to travel to Minneapolis to photograph him for her family.  I set-up a makeshift studio with my chemistry, lighting and portable darkroom in a conference room at a nearby hotel.  I was able to spend nearly two hours with Jordan alone creating. He gave me VIP passes to his show at the State Theatre. What a wonderful and informative evening. The topic was love and marriage.  The talk made me miss my wife who was back home in Bismarck.  

We were able to make 4 plates together and I also was able to capture a portrait of his wife Tammy, a gift to her and Jordan for their kindness.
