The images themselves give you the impression that you are taking a peek back into time - even though the actual photography was very recent. I first saw the story over at The Online Photographer. It discusses the work of Robb Kendrick , a photographer who works with the TinType process to create his images.
The original story appeared over at NPR Radio right here and is a fascinating look at Robb's projects and work. Here is a video clip right here of Robb himself telling about his 16 weeks and 41,000 mile trek across the country to make the project happen. This is truly a peek into an artist's mind.
