America loves their guns, and there are a lot of guns out there. Every gun owner has their own personal reason for why they own firearms. This is why I’ve decided to explore the diversity of gun owners in the United States using the wet plate process. I am going around the United States and photographing gun owners using my 4×5 and 8×10 cameras. I could take the same exact picture 5 times using the wet plate process and every time get a different result, I feel this is conducive to the overarching message of the project, which is the diversity of gun owners and the diverse reasons they choose to carry. If you really want to support this project; I’m looking for financial backing as well, This process is very temperamental and expensive and any help would be much appreciated.
