    Robb Kendrick--Modern Tintypes in National Geographic

    Wasn't sure where to put this, so if this isn't right maybe Sean could move it?


    The October issue of National Geographic dropped through my door yesterday. I was reading through this morning and flicked to one of the regular sections 'ZipUSA' a monthly focus on a Zip Code, this month Elko, Nevada.
    But this month I didn't see the text. All the photographs for the article are tintypes made by photographer Robb Kendrick and processed on the spot in a makeshift darkroom. He used an 8x10 view camera and 5x7 metal plates.

    Anyhow, I just thought some of the folks here might be interested. There are more of his tintypes on the Nat Geo website along with some technical information.

    You can see it at http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ look for the heading 'Magazines' and then below it 'The Art Of Tintypes'. I tried to link direct to the article but for some reason it wouldn't work. You can see a summary of the article and more tintypes through the 'More Online' link and then by clicking the 'ZipUSA' box. too.

    Interesting and encouraging to see, in this ever more technology focussed media world, a magazine photographer dedicated to using 'the old ways'.

    I actually sent an email to National Geographic asking about the digital prizes offered in a contest and what that meant for the future of analog photography in respect to the magazine. The reply I received said that the majority of the magazine is still film photography and that film will continue to be used.

    Just thought I'd share that.

    The Nat Geo site seems to have been updated now, however if you use the link above and then type 'tintypes' into the search bar on their site, you'll still find some interesting stuff... including a range of vintage tintypes for sale.

    Also this link should take you to the original article with Robb Kendrick's tintypes. If it doesn't type 'Elko' into the NG searchbar.

    NatGeoD Dec07: Feature story shot w/TINTYPE

    No Photoshop, just real toxic chemicals.

    The feature "The Enduring Cowboy" is based on Robb Kendrick's (gorgeous -- need I even have to say it?) tintypes.

    The editorial on page 4 is pretty funny too.

    Nat Geo used Rob Kendrick's work three years ago: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum56/9...eographic.html. Good to see they've returned to the medium.

    Nice, Thanks for the update. Not sure if it is ok to post a link to the work on the NG site (so if the mods pull it, I understand). Looks like it may be some of the new work, Kendrick was doing in South America.

    Thanks for the link. Its a good story with good photographs, a good change of pace for NG. I was glad to see how the article attempts to convey what the life is like.
