“Conversations with History” by David Emitt Adams

703
Conversations with History (4)

David Emitt Adams, an American photographer, collects discarded cans from the Arizona desert floor, some over four decades old, which have earned a deep reddish-brown, rusty patina. This patina is the evidence of light and time, the two main components inherent in the very nature of photography. He uses these objects to speak of human involvement with this landscape and create images on their surfaces through a labor-intensive 19th century photographic process known as wet-plate collodion.
