American Tintype

I’ve been an ardent fan of the ‘alternative processes’ in photography for the last decade or so. I’ve taken classes in gum bichromate and cyanotype, but other than the attending classes, collecting a few antique optics, and acquiring a truly large collection of books on the various processes, I haven’t gone any deeper. The main reason is one of space, as I currently don’t have room for a wet darkroom. That will change.

This film American Tintype of the tintypist (great word!) Harry Taylor, created by Matt Morris is a poignant, beautifully told story about a man’s experience of loss transformed into a creative endeavor. Take a look:




A truly beautiful short film.
