    I Cannot Escape and I Cannot Forget by Jan Kratochvil

    8″ x 10″ Ambrotype   Why this composition:   Originally I have been thinking about composition from the military environment, but when the mask arrived I changed my mind and refused to create a plate with a laying soldier in a still position somewhere in the field. This final plate [...]

    Cry by Kate Horsley

    Half plate Ambrotype     I enthusiastically signed up for the mask project and looked forward to mask coming my way.  But I wasn’t prepared for what an emotive object the mask would be.  I initially thought of taking a self-portrait and strapped the mask on.  There was another mask [...]

    Below The Mask by Frank Adami

    18cm x 24cm Tintype “My intention for making this plate, was to show the emotions of a person who wears the gasmask in an adversary ambience. There can be fear, rage or maybe desperation, normally hidden by the mask. For this I made a double exposure, first one with the [...]

    13cm x 18cm Ambrotype “  I’d changed job and town and due to that I wasn’t able to practice for a while now, but yesterday all came to play: the weather was OK enough, I had an assistant/model and time. So off we went… with the entire equipment heading to [...]

     
  • Witness to a death by Tim Ingmire

    Witness to a death by Tim Ingmire

    Tim Ingmire 5×4 Tintypes As you may already be aware, the Mask Series stopped accepting new participants (at least temporarily) when the number of photographers taking part reached a whopping one-hundred and fifty.  In the interests of fairness, however, the man behind the Mask, Shane Balkowitsch, then opened a list [...]
