Dates for your Diary 
An illustrated talk by documentary photographer Chris Chapman 
Exhibition of Tin Types by Tif Hunter 
17 – 20 May 2018 

For the past seven years, photographer Tif Hunter has nursed an interest in ‘tintypes’. These are handmade, one-off images which use a 19th century technique, developed in the early days of photography. First invented in the 1850s, tintypes were particularly popular during the Civil War in late 19th century America. Join us on Wednesday 16 May for a preview of the exhibition and talk with Tif.
