Why I make daguerreotypes
Beauty: First and foremost, the potential of the process to produce beautiful images.
Challenging Craft: It is a challenging craft providing the pleasures (and frustrations) of exercising and coordinating mind and hand.
Surprise: The process does not image the world in a literal sense but transforms it in exciting and unexpected ways -- opening doors one didnít know were there.
Mystery: The technology and science underlying the process is still an intriguing mystery - why it works sometimes and not others.
Above all it is the potential beauty of the process that is both necessary and sufficient for me.
