Appearance is not the reproduction of subject matter, but the identity of time. I exposed wet plate collodion and expired 4x5 color films at same time, and then processed glass plates and films separately. For the outcome, glass plates become the one and only, and with films, the existence of both mediums at the same time would offset each other’s nature of replicability.
