Overview


America's first major contribution to the art of photography, whcih dates back to the heyday of the cattle drives (1850-1880), tintypes went on to become the country's favorite portrait format. A tedious and unforgiving method of photography that requires patience and commitment from both the subject and the photographer, posing for a tintype requires more time than modern point-and-shoot photography, and instructions must be followed carefully or the photograph will be ruined. The tintypes-eighty-five in all-are showcased and are accompanied by field notes that provide a look at each individual and his or her dedication to the cowboy way of life.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Ever since he was a teenager, photographer Robb Kendrick has been enthralled by tintypes. In Revealing Character, he utilizes this luminous 19th-century technology to capture the visages of 21st-century Texas cowboys and cattlewomen. Accompanying each image are reflections by these modern-day frontier workers.
Abilene Reporter News
"he(Kendrick)...brings tales of Wild West Texas ranches into...urban museums and onto living room coffee tables. The portrait...tells a timeless tale of American life, American dreams and the American frontier."
Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"a fascinating book of portraits. They, like the mythology that sometimes surrounds cowboys, are far from finely focused."
Continental magazine
"The images truly portray the spirit of Texas cowboys--determination, integrity, humility and a strong work ethic."
Dallas Morning News
"True artistry."
Bryan College Station Eagle
"...the book of the year in Texas...an elegant tribute to the working cowboy."
Brilliant magazine
"When I first saw the cowboy photographs, my eyes played a trick on my mind."
