British Photographer Uses Wet Plate Camera to Document Newcastle

The photographs you are about to see were taken not in the 1800s but only recently, contrary to how they look like!

Newcastle, England-based photographer Jonathan Keys uses a 10×8 Circa camera that’s around 130 years old to take fascinating photographs of his city. In an interview with The Daily Mail, Keys said that it takes 15 minutes for each photograph to be developed, which he does in a nearby darkroom, and that he only takes up to six photographs a day.

Keys has been doing wet plate photography for three years and is one of the 50 or so people, according to his own estimate, who practices the same method in the United Kingdom today.

Have a look at some of his works below!
