I’ve been a big admirer of Alberich’s photography on his flickr feed for some time now. I call him the Titian of the photographic world. He creates beautifully poetic underwater portraits of sirens and nymphs from Greek mythology that have more than a passing resemblance to the work of the great 16th century Venetian fine art painter of flesh: Tiziano Vecellio – more commonly known as Titian. The photographer himself remains a bit of an enigma. I attempted to contact him regarding my wish to showcase his work on this blog, but have received no word back. Neither can I glean any personal information about Alberich on the internets. However, I think his work speaks more than eloquently for him.

With the increasing ubiquity of digital photography, passionate and vocational photographers are gradually returning to more artisanal analogue-based photographic processes. Mark Sink’s fine art photography is a perfect example of this trend. Using a wet plate process developed in the 1850s, sometimes referred to as the collodian process, his work is both contemporary and antiquated in equal measure. This combination creates a timelessness to his work that is very compelling and hauntingly beautiful. Please click on the links below to discover more of Mark’s amazing work.
