Dan Baird-Miller tears up a scene

Fine Art Photographer, Dan Baird-Miller is based in Malden, Massachusetts.

His project, Collodion Autoportrait twists the typically conservative images associated with the format into a series of images that feel almost feral. Through various manipulations – whether it is chemical, or a simple but calculated tearing of the negative – Baird-Miller avoids conventional, seductive rendering of his sitters. Instead, he grapples to reveal what lies under the surface of the skin.
