Here is another assemblage using my old studio portraits. This photograph is a tintype. The image is made by coating little tin metal plates with a light sensitive coating. They are like daguerreotypes, each one is unique and cannot be reprinted. I have put the photograph into a shadowbox frame, still intact, nothing glued or attached to it. The lady in this portrait is sterner than my imaginary seashell collector. I imagine her as a Victorian 'bluestocking,' seriously engaged in studying botany and ornithology.
Thanks for looking enjoy your weekend. x
