Women of Faith is a recent, still running project of mine where I use the wet plate collodion (tintype) photographing technique to take portraits of women of different faith who cover their heads for religious purposes. I started the project after the 2016 elections when many attacks on Muslims and Jewish cemeteries happened within a few weeks from each other. I would like to demonstrate that all religions have the same root and that we are more similar than different, just like the reason that woman cover their heads with the same intent.
This technique was popular in the second part of the 19th and early 20th century. I use a large format, accordion type camera to capture images on an aluminum plate that carries a light sensitive chemical.
