Cuillin Mountain in the Isle of Skye, renowned to be the most technical and atmospheric range to mountaineer in the UK, sets the scene for Simon's analogue project. What could be more challenging than climbing with a load of chemicals and being a type 1 diabetic? Join Simon as he dives (not literally) into his project - Peak Perseverance - which focuses on shooting wet plate collodion in the mountains. He'll explain why he wanted to take on such a challenge, knowing the high chance of failure, and cover the extensive kit he takes with him to develop plates with zero control over the environment.
