On Taking Pictures #270: The Luster Dulls Over Time

June 27, 2017 at 9:00AM • 1 hour 16 minutes

This week, we’re talking about inherited meaning, specifically related to last week’s discussion around using tintype to capture older blues musicians and how that process seemed to “fit” the subject matter. Does the process give the photographs more meaning? Is the fact that they are actual tintypes “better” than if a similar effect had been achieved with a preset or a filter? Also, a terrific story about a husband and wife, their Hasselblad, and the Moon. Lilian Day Thorpe is our Photographer of the Week.

Hosted by Bill Wadman & Jeffery Saddoris.
