James Wigger

Nostrae Dominae - 2015


About the artist

The photography of James Wigger is often reminiscent of a relic forgotten in time. Decay, texture, and darkness shrouds the subjects in his work from the viewer's eyes to keep all meaning ambiguous.

Using vintage camera, expired film, and wet plate collodion; James approaches his work with a deep respect for craftsmanship. He will often apply unusual finished to his pieces like encaustic wax or hand-sewing prints to create installations.
