Roxanne Prescott is a photographer working in Los Angeles, California and the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming. Her introduction to the historical wet plate collodion technique in 2008 opened the door to the art of hand crafted photography. Roxanne has since studied with the top practitioners in the field of 19th century photography. Using light sensitive chemistry on paper, glass and metal, she infuses her images with a visual poetry. Roxanne's photographs have been exhibited across the U.S. and in Europe.
Since 2010, Roxanne has been utilizing the calotype process, and is an active member of The Calotype Society, an international group of photographers who practice and study the process.
In 2013, members of The Calotype Society were invited to photograph and exhibit their work on the grounds of Lacock Abbey where W.H.F. Talbot made his famous discovery of the calotype negative process.
In 2015, The Calotype Society reunited in Edinburgh and Saint Andrews, Scotland, which was an early hotbed of the 19th century practitioners and where the team of Hill and Adamson flourished.
In the Fall of 2015, Roxanne, along with other members of The Calotype Society exhibited their prints made from calotypes at the University of Louisville's Photographic Archives Gallery. Her prints were accepted into the archives.
In August of 2017, Roxanne's images were exhibited in the National Library of Norway, and her prints were accepted into the archives.
