Wet Plate Collodion photography.
The collodion process was invented by British scientist Frederick Scott Archer in the early 1950's and was the first process that produced a clear photographic negative. Earlier methods involved using paper as the negative medium which lacked clarity and sharpness.
From these wet plates photographers then created positive paper prints such as Salt and later Albumen prints - known today as ‘Alternative Photography’
