EAST 2014: Tintype

Clip | 2m 26s

Lumiere Tintype creates hand made tintype portraits from a travelling studio and darkroom using only traditional 19th century processes. This is not modern, digital photography with endless streams of disposable photographs. At the intersection of science and art, Lumiere finds an alchemy that requires participants to slow down and return to the roots of photography.
