THE BACKSTORY:

Lindsey Ross (b. 1981) is one of the last holdouts in the Funk Zone, Santa Barbara’s fabled but rapidly changing arts neighborhood. She’s a badass fine-art photographer who traffics in wet-plate collodion tintypes because she finds that the slow pace of collodion requires a presence and intimacy with both the physical and spiritual world. 

She specializes in historical photographic processes, namely wet plate collodion and tintypes. She drives a vintage green and white Ford pickup truck, which she bought in Colorado during a powder-skiing film project, and keeps it from sputtering out with a little gumption and help from her friends. She learned to love her craft from her father, David Ross, a photographer and college administrator. 

For this issue of The Collective Quarterly, she made an exclusive study of oak trees around the Central Coast.
