Lindsey Ross began exploring old and alternative methods of photography at Brooks Institute and since then has gone on to focus of the wet collodion process. At the moment she is rockin' the FunkZone at La Chambre Photographique, where she creates modern portraits that look like they come from the mid 19th century. She joins a sub-culture of photographers who choose to leave behind digital and embrace old technologies.

In this jolly chat, we talk about her work, life and working in the FunkZone.

Topics include:

The meticulous nature of old photographic technology
Her experience at Fort Hayes School of the Arts, Columbus Ohio
How collodion reminds her of her childhood
Working with intuition and her learning curve
The toxicity of the process
Carlton Watkins' landscape photographs
How a technology's limitations become its aesthetic signature
Her Little Mermaid commission
Her early life in the midwest
Her undergrad studies in Theology at Denison University
How she convinced her family to go to church
Her move to Wyoming and how rural people don't conform to stereotypes
Her stint in journalism and covering local politics
How moving to Isla Vista changed her art path
Brooks Institute and her faux journalist experience
How her art annoyed a National Geographic photographer
The unavoidable whimsy of Santa Barbara
The evolution of the FunkZone
