Revisioning the Present with an Old Lens: Tin Type Photography

Craig Murphy of Glens Falls Art has been developing something amazing the last few years!

As a photographer and artist, Murphy has started a mobile studio that he uses to keep alive the process of wet plate tintype photography.  More about this experience can be found on their website: www.glensfallsart.com

Here is a time-lapsed video of Murphy creating a tin type at the Yankee Hill Lock location of Schoharie Crossing on April 22nd, 2017. 




We are pretty excited that Glens Falls Arts has visited the site several times in the last few months to take images in this "old style" and bring to life the way the site looks now through a historic lens - literally. While the site has a collection of images dating to the 1860's of portions of what is now Schoharie Crossing, being able to revision the way the features look today is remarkable.
