Penumbra TinType Sessions

The Penumbra Foundation will set up a tintype booth at the 2018 Photoville festival.

Considered by many to be the Polaroid of the 19th century, the tintype is made almost instantaneously through a process that uses hand poured chemicals on an enameled sheet of metal. Tintypes, often found today in near original condition, were passed down as family heirlooms and valued for their time-tested archival stability.
