    Continuing from my previous post about portraits, here is a link to set of portraits by a modern photographer called Jacqueline Roberts, who uses the wet plate process. Her subjects (again continuing a theme from my earlier post) are children and young people. The wet plate process produces strangley haunting pictures, in which the subjects seem to be forming before our eyes, or surfacing from under water, which seems strikingly apt in portraits of young people.
