Wet Plate was in our special focus throughout 2014. In order to reach wider audiences and introduce them to this small photographic community, we’ve decided to publish a series of special free editions of BLUR magazine where we would yet again present the photographers published in previous editions of our regular Wet Plate section of BLUR.

We’ll also be publishing some previously unpublished photos by these authors (we’ll mark them with a star for easier reference!), as well as a special Wet Plate version of our Gallery 24 – we therefore invite you to send us two of your best Wet Plate photos using our default submission form.

Friends and acquaintances often ask me why I don’t publish my own work in BLUR magazine. I have to admit it made absolutely no sense to me during all these years… until now. 2014 was the Year of Wet Plate not only for BLUR, but for me personally – it was the year when I started to practice and perfect my skills in using the collodion process. I’ve therefore decided to add one of my own Wet Plate photos in each of these free BLUR editions – I just cannot resist placing my own work shoulder to shoulder with such an impressive roster of artists. :)

And finally, on behalf of the entire BLUR team, I wish you a happy and successful New Year.

Robert Gojević, founder and editor in chief
