You’ve never sat for a picture like this before. If tin-type images appear other-worldly, it’s because they’re of another time. Also known as wet-plate photography, the process was invented in 1851 and lasted a scant 30 years before other processes won the day. Each image is deeply unique and even mesmerizing. They have the shimmer of memory about them; blurring the line between nostalgia and the now.
