Gary Briechle, Rockland, Maine: Wet-plate Collodion Camera Slows Life Down Into Intimate Moments

"When I make a photograph, it has the feeling of a miracle. Almost like a zen thing. The good pictures, I can’t take full credit for them. You don’t make a photograph so much as receive it. I wander around with my eyes open, and I’m just hoping for the best. Sometimes things that you’d never think would be special, you just hit upon, not fully understanding at the time why." ~Gary Briechle, photographer, Rockland, Maine
