Tintype Portraits By Michael Shindler

Michael Shindler is taking photography back to the old school with his series of tintype portraits, which cast modern people in an antiquated light.

I like the haunted look of the people in these portraits, the ways their eyes are lit up and how the shallow depth of field makes all that surrounds their head blur into obscurity.

If I remember correctly, Holgrave in The House of the Seven Gables said that daguerrotypes reveal true character. the process takes a long time so people cannot hold a false expression. They always revert to their natural state.
