One of the participants will be Shutter Hub member Nicolas Laborie, who produces work using the Wet Plate Collodion process. His picture “L`enfant Sauvage” ( Wild child ),  inspired by Les fleurs du Mal ( Flowers of evil ) by Charles Baudelaire. The work comes from his series “Flowers: Proses in Ether”, inspired by poetry.
