Youth

Added on by Emil Ryge.

I've recently posted the first leg of my tintype series on youth on my website. It's still a work in progress and I'll post more images as I make them. 

I haven't written a full statement yet, but I'm exploring the effects of speed and of slowing down. These kids and young adults are moving at a blistering pace, often posting pictures of our shared image-making process on social media before I'm even done setting up my slow and complicated wet plate collodion rig. I'm curious to see the effect of asking them to sit still for extended periods at a time and their response to the laborious process involved in making a tintype image. 


The White Album - The Quiet Strum

Added on by Emil Ryge.

My good friends in Danish band The White Album just released their full-length album, The Quiet Strum.

Handsome guys, making very beautiful music. 

I've had the pleasure of doing all the images as tintypes, just as I did with their two singles. The cover and back images are triple exposures, the idea being that they look very much alike, so why not just merge them all together? All done in-camera on two single aluminum plate. Talk about stress.

Here's a song from the new album, which can be found here.


Tønder Festival Tintypes

Added on by Emil Ryge.

Never in my life have I seen so many fiddles. 

I recently came back from Tønder Festival, 2014 where I had the pleasure of doing a bunch of wet plate tintypes throughout the festival. Nice to do something just for the fun of it. 

The following is a mix of images of musicians, volunteers and whatever else made it's way past my little studio.
