Tintype of Death

Tintype Portrait Studio Shoots Historic Images of Locals June 25: Everyone welcome as Burlington music scene veteran returns to make Civil War era portraits at Radio Bean/¡Duino! (Duende)/Light Club Lamp Shop

Words by James Lockridge. Images by Jeff Howlett and Chris Morgan.

Introduced in the mid-19th century, each tintype photograph is individually created by coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing a metal plate as the subject sits for the portrait session. Many Civil War era photographs were created with this historic technology, which provides a hauntingly beautiful and permanent image especially suitable for heirloom portraits of individuals, families, artists and bands. Photographers Jeff Howlett and Chris Morgan have been photographing tintypes for over 17 years. The public is invited to have individual and family portrait heirlooms taken in this timeless medium from 6pm-1am at Radio Bean/¡Duino! (Duende)/Light Club Lamp Shop, 10 North Winooski Avenue, Burlington, Vermont on June 25. The cost of each image is $40.00, and everyone is welcome to come see this rare process in action (all ages, free to watch!). For directions to ¡Duino! (Duende) and the menu, visit duinoduende.com.
