S. Gayle Stevens visited Serenbe in Summer 2012. She has worked in antiquarian photographic processes for over fifteen years. Her chosen medium is wet plate collodion for its fluidity and individuality: she especially delights in the flaws. Using modified Holgas and cameraless photography, she produces small wet plate tintypes. She exhibits extensively across the United States.
Stevens received a MFA from the School of the Art Institute of chicago in 1999. She was named one of the Critical Mass Top Fifty Photographers for 2010, received second place in the Lens Culture International Exposure Awards in 2011. A member of the When Pigs Fly photo collective, she divides her time shooting in Pass Christian, Mississippi and Downers Grove, Illinois where she currently resides.
