Tintype Photographs of Shaker Village by Cole Caswell
Tintype, also melainotype and ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a sheet of iron metal that is blackened by painting, laquering or enamelling and is used as a support for a collodion photographic emulsion. As the support of the tintype (there is no actual tin used) is resilient and does not need drying, instant photographs can be produced only a few minutes after taking the photograph on-site.Each tintype measures approximately 6 5/8" x 4 5/8", is unframed, and are signed and numbered on the reverse. Cole received an interdisciplinary M.F.A. from the Maine College of Art, and has been working, living and traveling throughout the county in a nomadic format. He is an Adjunct Faculty Researcher at Prescott College in Arizona and Adjunct Faculty at Southern Maine Community College.
