Other June Jubilee
Friday, June 5, 5 pm – 8 pm: Art Hop:
Tintype Photography by Eric Hennig
Self-taught photographer Eric Hennig specializes in antique
tintype and ambrotype photographs, a process used during the middle 1800s.
Known in some circles as Victor Vague, Hennig creates gorgeous wet-plate
collodion photographs using 19th century techniques and equipment. His
anachronistic portraits command the viewer’s attention and demand a closer
look, fairly drawing out the very soul of his subjects and creating a haunting
image seemingly transported from another era.
Saturday, June 6, 9 am
– 3:30 pm: Friends
