Tintype Portrait Sessions And Demonstration says
Become an instant classic! Sign-up and have your portrait taken by world-renowned tintype photographer Keliy Anderson-Staley!
Space is limited. Couples and families are welcome!

Held in conjunction with the exhibition "[Hyphen] Americans," this portrait session will demonstrate to audiences the process of making a 19th century wet-plate collodion tintype photograph. Anderson-Staley will set up a photobooth on the premises, using a wooden camera, antique brass lenses, and hand-mixed chemistry to produce photographs on metal. Stop by for a chance to see how some of the first photographers made tintypes!

The process is slow and only a few portraits will be made per hour, those interested in having their portrait made should contact, cmoore@spenational.org to reserve their session.

All sitters will received a digital scan of their image to be used for personal purposes, and their tintype portrait will become part of Anderson-Staley’s ongoing photographic project that has been exhibited in museum and galleries around the country.

All are welcome to watch the photographer at work!
Free and open to the public.
