Lindsey Ross has early memories of making poster-sized silver-gelatin prints in the basement darkroom with her father. After earning a BA Religion at Denison University, Ross moved to the West to work on a self-sustaining cattle ranch in British Columbia. In 2008 Ross moved to California to pursue an MFA Photography. She started working with wet plate collodion process in 2011. This has become the ideal format for Ross, who seeks autonomy and at the same time a sense of connection. The slow pace of collodion requires a presence and intimacy that connects her to both the physical and spiritual world.
