The uncontrollable Wet Plate Process

Wet Plate Photography is full of surprises and coincidences, depending on the chemistry, the cleanliness of the glass, the humidity, the light, the colors, and so on...and so on. Can such a photography be fine art?
Yes it can, if you concentrate on the result more than on the intention of the photographer. The beautiness and the messages exist in the subject.
