Virginia-based photographer, Sally Mann’s powerful & frank ‘Upon Reflection’ series of self-portrait Ambrotypes. She began taking them while recovering from a horse riding accident. See Blogroll for a link.

The ambrotype (from Ancient Greek: ἀμβροτός — “immortal”, and τύπος — “impression”) or amphitype, also known as a collodion positive in the UK, is a positive photograph on glass made by a variant of the wet plate collodion process. Like a print on paper, it is viewed by reflected light. Wikipedia
