Henning Klasén is an unusual kind of photographer for these days, his work mainly focuses on wet plate photography which requires an enormous amount of determination, especially now. Given the work produced, I’m guessing it’s worth it. Henning explains on his website that these are wet plate images set on dark stained wood, which on a white background would look like negatives. Personally I find that this use of the frame as an essential element to the piece is fantastic, the images blend beautifully into the wood.
