Photographer Uses 160-Year-Old Camera To Take Eerily Beautiful Portraits


Giles Clement is a contemporary photographer who likes to do things the old-fashioned way, because the Nashville-based creative makes eerily beautiful portraits uses camera equipment made in the 1800s. Clement uses both tintype (a photograph taken as a positive on a thin tin plate) and ambrotype (an early type of photograph made by placing a glass negative against a dark background), two techniques that were popular in the 1850s and the 1860s, and as you can see from the pictures below, the end result is both haunting and arresting.
