Photos of Surfers Using Civil War-Era Process


Photographer Joni Sternback has been taking photos for a series she's calling "Surfland" since 2006. She's traveled the country photographing surfers on both coasts. "The photos are one-of-a-kind tintypes made with a large-format camera using a wet-plate collodion process, one made popular in the Untied States in Civil War–era photography."

Her photos have the same qualities as Civil War-era photos in that they transport you back in time even though you know you're looking at contemporary subject matter. Except with her photos you really wouldn't know when they were taken if somebody didn't tell you. It's really interesting how the process in which you use to develop your recorded light can have so much influence on our perception of the image.
