Lindsey Ross: A Less Convenient Path

12 mins


In an age of speed, convenience and ease, artist Lindsey Ross does things the hard way. Packing her truck with unwieldy vintage cameras and gallons of chemicals, she makes arresting portraits and lovely pictures of iconic Yosemite landmarks using wet collodion photography. The method is from another century (the 1850s to 1890s, to be exact), and the process is painstaking, yielding often-disappointing results. But when the stars align, the result is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. A Less Convenient Path is a profile of an artist who isn’t afraid of a little elbow grease and is intimately familiar with the beauty that’s born of struggle.
