Nickie Stone - SEA ISLANDS
January 2018

Using a 160-year-old photographic technique known as the collodion wet plate, or “ambrotype” process, Charleston-based photographer Nickie Stone captures one-of-a-kind images of the low-country landscape onto glass panels.

In her debut solo exhibition, Sea Islands, Nickie Stone presents a new body of photographic works created from deep within the marshes and waterways of the coastal islands of South Carolina. The scenes of Stone’s wet-plate photographs enact senses of immersive serenity and solitude, transferring the fast-paced modern-day viewer into a world where time seemingly stands still.
