Opening Reception and Silent Auction

One tintype portrait-sitting with San Francisco-based photographer Michael Shindler
Though a 19th-century technique, the chemical process of making a tintype is magical. Similar to a Polaroid, the tintype carries a direct and physical imprint of the subject and as the grainless portrait develops on aluminum in the darkroom, it reveals an image unlike any other photograph. Michael’s luminous tintype portraits were recently on view at the ICA in the exhibition: Exposed: Today’s Photography/Yesterday’s Technology.
