I want to give a big thank you to Paula Tognarelli from the Griffin Museum, Ulrike Heine, Gary Van Zandt from the MIT Musuem, and all the people who showed up for the event “Collecting Photography“. This was in support of an amazing exhibition of photographs from the collection of William B. Becker.
I played a very small role in a great program focused on collecting photography and antiquarian processes. The show itself is made of daguerreotypes and photographic prints from the mid 19th century. I was asked to demonstrate the wet plate collodion process using tintypes. For those interested in this period, run don’t walk to check it out.
Here are some images made by Tony Sahadeo showing what I love to do: share enthusiasm or historic processes and represent The New England School Of Photography. Enjoy.
