    • Ian Ruhther has a showing of some of his large format works down in Menlo park on Santa Cruz ave. Ambrotypes and tintypes. Going on through the 14th of March.
      Walked in the other night and the scale is very impressive!

      The tintype process is wonderful and the results have a haunting quality that in person can really pull you in.

    • seeing in person the huge size these were done at was impressive, the fact that a huge plate had to be held by 6 or more guys as theydeveloped and fixed the plate was a ton of coordination and work. And only one of each since the finished piece is the negative. there is a cool video of the van he used for some of the medium sized ones.
