Brianna Cristiano Submits Mark Osterman
Mark Osterman is known for his knowledge of historical photographic processes concentrating in Ambrotypes. Osterman is a very eccentric guy I was watching a video about his processes and he was talking about how dangerous it is and how he likes Ambrotypes because you can tell it is hand made. I find that interesting because people now days want things that are easy and fast and I felt a connection with this guy because he wants to kind of preserve the past and the past processes. He was saying how film is in its last years and that made me really sad. Everything has become digital and accessible to the public it doesn't have the same charm as old photographs have. I really enjoy his work.
