Sara Mulvey is a large format and ultra large format photographer, focusing in wet plate collodion photography.
Not traditionally trained, she became interested in wet plate photography after inheriting family tintypes - they seemed to transcended time and space. She has carved her own path in wet plate ever since.
The meticulous and meditative process of wet plate creates images that are in essence a transmutation of silver and light - that moment between the subject and photographer locked in time.
That intimacy and connection is what Sara hopes to continue to capture through her personal works and portraiture. Her vision with Revelry Tintype is not only to share the historic process of wet plate photography with those around her but to create stunning images that will hopefully spark the magic in others that first drew her to this art form.
Sara lives and works in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
