Overview

Revealing Character: Texas Tintypes by Robb Kendrick by Robb Kendrick

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.
