Event description
Nicolas Laborie In Conversation with IMA: Wet Plate Collodion and Self- Publishing

About this Event

IMA Studio is pleased to invite the current exhibiting artist at the The Muse Gallery, Nicolas Laborie, for an artist talk & discussion, in association with The Muse Gallery | Studio.

Specialising in Wet Plate Collodion, Nicolas is a Paris-born London-based photographer whose work discusses social commentary, human condition, and gender equality through the wet plate collodion process; mixing 19th century photographic process and technique with contemporary subjects.

Nicolas's new self-published book 'Sentiments Déshabillés' will be the lens through which he will discuss his practice/process and also the difference between a portfolio and an art book, the freedom of self publishing and the compromises along the way; including collaboration with others while regaining creative control, the financial side, and promotions/distributions.

The event will begin with a talk by Nicolas, about his Wet Plate Collodion practice and his new book & exhibition. This will be followed by an open conversation, and round table discussion between Nicolas, IMA studio, and the audience on thoughts inspired by the talk.

We welcome all who are interested in Wet Plate Collodion and self-publishing, as well as those wanting to contribute their experience as a creative individual.

In association with The Muse Gallery | Studio.

About Nicolas Laborie

Nicolas Laborie's photographic work has been exhibited in galleries in the UK and around the world including the Royal Academy of Art, Victoria and Albert Museum, Christie's Auction house, The London Art Fair, Affordable Art Fairs in UK and NYC, GX Gallery, The Mall Galleries, The Gherkin Building and at Voies Off, part of the Rencontres d`Arles photographic festival.

His upcoming exhibition at The Muse Gallery from 10 -27 Oct, Sentiments Déshabillés, is a poetic dialogue between botanicals and nudes. Nicolas Laborie responds to our fast paced world by stripping his practice back to basics and applying the same slow process as the photographic pioneers of the early 19th Century.
