Thank you all :)))
I had left behind my profile for some time, as you can see :(
But I'm really happy that someone brought an old image back to life.
So, yes - the image is wet plate collodion - the scratching I did in a drunken bout of anger, because I didnt like the image '. Since it turned out well, I decided to keep the concept and finish what I had started writing'. It was a sort of eh, whatever sort of thing really.

Ignorance is peace.

So, did you use a wet-plate process?

Interesting subject matter. I like how the king is the focus in a small depth of field, making the 'slaves' part of the scenery. I think the subject matter would have been more enticing if the phrase "'Freedom is Slavery' do not stray or be punished" was not included. These words tell the viewer what to think about the piece and don't allow them to figure out what it means for themselves. This shallowness usually creates a barrier between the viewer and the piece. Because the piece is saying "this is what I am" instead of "figure out what I am".
I find the small writing "1984" on the bottom right draws the viewer to the novel without the phrase. So those who have read/know about 1984 will get the reference.
