Tintype Portraits - Open Studio with Jemma Castiglione

About "Tintype Portraits":

Over two years ago, a younger Jemma could be found creating tintypes out of the back of her Accord. The production back then involved scraping together odd materials and a toy Holga camera. During her stay at Sulfur Studios' ON::VIEW Artist Residency, she will expand this process into a month long experimentation of tintype portraiture. Community is one of the most rewarding parts of the photographic medium. People are connecting over mutual visual interests daily. We are united through the camera as a device of capturing reality. There is an interest in older photographic methods like tintype but the education just isn’t around or practiced by enough people to be readily available. Throughout the length of this residency, Jemma will be creating around 30 tintypes in pursuit of spreading the importance of traditional photographic art.

Open Studio Hours: Thursdays & Fridays from 12 – 4:30PM and Saturdays from 1 – 5:30PM

Thursdays & Fridays: 12 - 1:30PM // 1:30 - 3PM // 3 - 4:30PM
