Allkimik - Backstage ambrotypes

Allkimik – Backstage ambrotypes

“Backstage ambrotypes” series was created in 2014 at Electric Castle Festival after the artists’ performance was over. The technique used is called ambrotype – a glass plate treated with photosensitive silver right before exposure and developed and fixed after exposure. See the whole series on the festival’s social network gallery.

Allkimik is Alex Spineanu and Stefan Dinu. Together they are part of a analog photo studio experimenting with Daguerreotype, Albumen prints, Cibachrome, Stereograph, Tri-color Gum prints alongside Ambrotypes and more common 35mm film works. If you do not know what half of those terms mean – like me – feel free to visit them and have a chat. Also check them out online at
