Greg Hopkins loves and lives history. He's a builder of traditional hot rods, a leather crafter, perfume maker, and collodion wet plate photographer.
From 1851-1880, if you were a general, a poet, a proud family, an aristocrat, or anyone else who wanted to preserve their image, chances are that picture was captured using collodion wet plate photography.
The Department of Style is a field guide to the timeless, the adventurous, and the enthusiastic. We celebrate craft. We explore tradition. We find the creative imaginations that take classic forms and make them their own.
It is about understanding that in life, doing something right takes time, and skill, and effort. But therein lies the joy. Finding people who still do those things that way and telling their stories is the original Departmental mandate.
