Tintype Portrait Sessions with Penn Chan at Kingman Gallery

penn-chan-01The Kingman Gallery will be hosting tintype photographer, Penn Chan, Saturday, August 8 and Sunday, August 9. Chan will be set up to take portraits in this historic process popular in the later part of the 19th century. The sitting takes about 20 minutes with the direct positive image set on a piece of metal treated with a light sensitive emulsion. You receive the fixed portrait moments later. Sessions will be scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The 4” x 5” size will accommodate up to 2 people in the portrait, at a cost of $40. Call (207) 348-9333 to book a time. Also on view will be Penn Chan’s 8” x 10” non-portrait tintypes, which include haunting images of flowers, vegetables, butterflies and other images from the natural world.
