Icon & Pears TinType January 15 2014, 0 Comments


I originally wanted to make this tintype a month ago but I came down with a nasty upper respiratory infection and couldn't work with the chemistry without irritating my lungs; I had gathered these little irregular pears during my morning walks in Madison, Wisconsin along the shores of Lake Monona. Luckily they didn’t deteriorate during their stay in my small studio refrigerator where I keep my film.  - Gregory Bleck - Tintypesist / Photographic Artist, Madison, Wisconsin
