Nicolas Laborie's wet plate collodion polyptychs are inspired by the current and constant immigration crisis and the essence of humanity against the wind of changes in today’s world. As the wind blows and vast flow of refugees and migrants fight the current as feathers in constant flight. They become often misunderstood and pay a lethal price: the feathers become war bonnets, helmets and crowns for the many in power.

Their journey and struggle both had a deep connection with Laborie’s photographic practice: wet plate collodion. Each wet plate is born from highly toxic chemicals; leaving a trace of, pain, struggle, longing but also uniqueness.

You can find out more about the Wet Plate Collodion Process and see Nicolas at work in this short video,and you can see more work by Nicolas Laborie at his Shutter Hub profile and in addition his website.
