Jody Ake, ou “um fotógrafo à antiga”.

À antiga na estética, no motivo e, principalmente, na técnica, que repesca dos primórdios da fotografia. O resultado é obviamente “datado”, mas consistente e coerente.

Uma opção de percurso. Aqui ficam as imagens.

Jody Ake creates portraits, nudes, still lifes and landscape images using the wet collodion processs. Invented in 1851, the method entails coating a glass plate with collodion and exposing the plate while it is still wet. The end results are ambrotypes, appearing on glass in the form of a negative until backed by black velvet, thus rendering the positive image. Ake is one of a handful of contemporary artists who have revived this photographic method, hand-mixing all of the necessary chemicals for each and every exposure.

Jody Ake was born and raised in the American south. After attending the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico with a major in photography, he moved to Portland, Oregon to continue his education. He received a Masters in Photography from the University of Oregon and shortly thereafter relocated to New York City. While living and working in NYC and Brooklyn, Ake continued to explore collodion as his process of choice, shooting portraiture, landscapes and still life subject matter, and has maintained his profession as an independent photographer throughout. He currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
