Best Throwback Photography: Lumiere Tintype

Best Throwback Photography: Lumiere Tintype
PHOTO BY Shelley Hiam

We stumbled upon Lumiere’s Tintype Photography’s mobile booth during EAST and instantly fell in love. The 150-year-old photo process is a perfect marriage of science and art (and makes for a super rad Instagram: @lumiere_tintype). Owner and operator Adrian Whipp makes beautiful and haunting images from a small mobile booth that normally sits at Justine’s Brasserie, but can be moved to other locations. Tintype reacts to colors differently than your standard black & white photos, so blues appear almost white while reds can come through as black. Bring in your friends, family, or pets for a photo session, or sit for a solo portrait and leave with a beautiful, unique metal print.
