For the past seven years, photographer Tif Hunter has nursed an interest in ‘tintypes’. These are handmade, one-off images which use a nineteenth-century technique, developed in the early days of photography.
Hunter’s pioneering work with tintype portraiture, combined with 21st century lighting techniques, has led to many commissions including those from The Jerwood Foundation and retailer Toast. His commercial work has been featured in Lurzer’s Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide. Hunter’s clients include British Airways, Sony and The Guardian.
Messum’s Wiltshire is a pioneering multi-purpose gallery and arts centre celebrating the creative endeavour.
