I’ve wanted to get a tintype done ever since I saw Giles Clement in action at the 2014 Newport Folk Fest. Nothing quite so haunting as watching the faces of the world’s best folk music emerge from the murky depths of iron and emulsion beneath the arch of an aging fort. So, when I came across a tintype artist at the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, Maine last September, I went for it. Thanks to Cole Caswell of AgNO3 Lab for the lovely shot. The booth and the developing process were inspiration in and of themselves, so I thought I would share a few photos that I took of the process.

I love these images, looks like an interesting process. I wonder if anyone in the UK does this – I shall have to find out. Thanks for the inspiration!
