About the artist

Adrian Cook is an award-winning portrait and documentary photographer and has worked for major advertising agencies and magazines around the world for the last 25 years. His work has been exhibited worldwide and has picked up awards at Cannes and D&AD, amongst others. In Australia, he has been a finalist in Head On, Art & About, The Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize, and the National Photographic Portrait Prize.

In early 2015, uninspired by the predictability and monotony of digital photography, he began taking photographs using the wet plate collodion process in an effort to recreate the aesthetic qualities and characteristics lost with the demise of film. He now works on personal projects using wet-plate techniques, both in the studio and on-the-road from his mobile darkroom.
