Surfland series by Joni Sternbach

Who needs a digital camera when you could be processing your portraits right there on the beach, with the subjects looking on? This is the approach taken by Joni Sternbach with her Surfland series, using a technique unchanged since the 19th century.

Sternbach’s tintype photos are made with a large format camera using wet plates developed on location, resulting in unpredictable, timeless images of surfers and locals. Landscapes look equally haunting using the wet plate collodion technique and the process just seems to slow time, to capture a slice of history more effectively than any SLR could ever hope to.
