mini tintypes

I used a 35mm camera to create mini tintypes. It was a blast, I really enjoyed shooting wet plate inside a 35mm camera!! The tintypes are cased in small tin boxes so they can be displayed or tucked away for safe keeping.

The series was inspired by the small things we have in our lives, from tools to keepsakes and one of a kind items we keep from loved ones or our past. I have also been inspired by the way images were kept in the mid 19th century, especially small cased images. They were protected and kept, displayed and loved.

These pieces are part of an exhibit titled "Intimate Treasures" which opens November 25th.
