good day fellow absinthe lovers! 

i am a fine art photographer based in london. 

i specialise in a 19th century photographic technique called "wet plate collodion ambrotype".  

recently i have successfully concocted a new chemistry formula to use absinthe within the photographic process, i call it "absintype / C-ka"  ;)

here's the look & style of the photos, its very dark a morbid looking hope you will enjoy!

If anyone would be interested in viewing any more of my works here's a link - http://www.facebook....ungPhotographer

good day to you!

Dead Victorian baby ambrotypes (simulated or otherwise) make this warped clown smile. :paperbag3: 

 

 

Seriously, your work is something else!
