Bridgett McGuire and children

Posted in Mothers and Children, WetPlate by marktucker on January 2, 2013

We shot this today. My neighbor, from my old house on Gilmore Avenue — Bridgett McGuire and two of her four children. We shot all four children, but I just can’t make it work together yet. I like this image as a standalone. This is Sadie and Jed, with Bridgett. 8×10 collodion on metal. Part of the ongoing Mother Project. Feels like echoes of Julia Margaret Cameron. I can remember bumping into Bridgett at 8th Avenue Kroger on the day she found out she was pregnant with Jed, (bottom right).

    I love these images. I want to learn how to make images like this. Wish I could find someone local to teach me.

    What a beautiful way to start my morning…stopping by your journal and yumming on photographs and your mother’s new perm.
