About the Event
IMA Studio is pleased to invite the current exhibiting artist at the The Muse Gallery, Nicolas Laborie, for an artist talk & discussion, in association with The Muse Gallery | Studio.
Specialising in Wet Plate Collodion, Nicolas is a Paris-born London-based photographer whose work discusses social commentary, human condition, and gender equality through the wet plate collodion process; mixing 19th century photographic process and technique with contemporary subjects.
Nicolas's new self-published book 'Sentiments Déshabillés' will be the lens through which he will discuss his practice/process and also the difference between a portfolio and an art book, the freedom of self publishing and the compromises along the way; including collaboration with others while regaining creative control, the financial side, and promotions/distributions.
The event will begin with a talk by Nicolas, about his Wet Plate Collodion practice and his new book & exhibition. This will be followed by an open conversation, and round table discussion between Nicolas, IMA studio, and the audience on thoughts inspired by the talk.
We welcome all who are interested in Wet Plate Collodion and self-publishing, as well as those wanting to contribute their experience as a creative individual.
