Howe Point, Ducktrap River Bridge – Tintypes


Ducktrap River Bridge on Rt. 1 at Howe Point, Maine.

My friend Joe needed a subject for his multimedia workshop project and I needed an excuse to get out and make tintypes in the wild, so we headed up the coast to Howe Point and set up shop.


I was working inside my cramped darkbox, in cold temps (I think it was around 40F), and for some reason I had a massive headache, so conditions weren’t ideal. The artifacts around the edges are from me doing a terrible job of pouring the chemistry. I do think, though, that they look really cool.


A couple hours, two ibuprofens, and three tins later he had his footage and I had some images of the Rt. 1 bridge over the Ducktrap River.
