Tintype Central: Wet Plate Portrait Sessions

6 April 2024, 10:00am - 7 April 2024, 3:00pm
Social History Gallery

Be inspired by the Bragge Exhibition Splendid Scenic Gems and get your own portrait taken!

This April, photographer Adrian Cook takes his mobile darkroom (a 1950's Bond-wood caravan) to the Aratoi, Wairarapa Museum of Art and History to craft timeless portraits using the wet plate collodion process, a 19th century method of development that predates film photography.

Plates will be posted to clients once varnished & cured, a week or so after their session.

Sessions last 45 minutes and are limited to 2 people per plate.

Please book early to avoid disappointment as sessions are limited.
