tintype

Can you make an image on a tin can?

Yes, you can! In September this year, I had the pleasure of meeting with and seeing the work of David Emmit Adams, an emerging photographer who creates compelling tintype images on discarded cans he collects from Arizona’s Sonoran Desert.  Each piece a unique object, the image he chooses for each can is a photograph of the landscape where it was found. His use of this 19th century photographic process is imaginative and captivating.
