Honza Sakař’s fascination with the wet-collodion process began around five years ago. His photographs stand as a counterpoint to digital perfectionism, by virtue of being a study, a drive to capture an otherworldly presence.

The wet-collodion process, invented in the 1850s, involves what can only be described as magical amalgamation of chemicals, light, and plenty of patience. The plates emerge from a silver nitrate bath before being quickly exposed and dried.

The exhibit features iconic points of interest in South Moravia, including meadows, forests, castles, historical sites, and local celebrities.

The exhibition was financed and curated by the Moravian Glory Foundation.
