[Pics] Modern Military Portraits on Tintype
I’m fascinated by this series of military portraits by Melissa Cacciola. As the earliest photographic processes become more and more rare, it’s refreshing to see a series like this one. These photographs capture more than just the person’s image. At the risk of sounding cliche, it feels as if we’re getting a glimpse into the subjects’ heart and soul. She photographed each of them in uniform, and in their civilian clothes. And she made the chemicals and materials by hand. All of a sudden, I feel quite lazy.
