The animals, plants, and places collected in “The Gallery Of The Lost” are a fairly disparate bunch, so it’s hard to see in what sense they are “lost”. Perhaps some of the plants and animals have gone extinct. Maybe some of these places no longer exist. Or possibly it’s just that all moments are ephemeral, and moments exactly like those depicted will never come again.
“Gallery Of The Lost 3” uses an image from deviantART photographer Merlinator-Stock altered with the Filter Forge filter “Tinto Lookslike” by Dark Rayden. The resulting image was given additional manipulation in Photoshop.
Dedicated to my friend Brad Hitz, an accomplished practitioner of wet plate photography.
