Behind the Scenes: The Tin Gypsy’s Sauvie Island Adventure

February 6, 2012

I am currently very excited and extremely honored to be working on a collaboration with wonderful artist, Francesca Berrini. Francesca has been constructing intricate and beautiful haute couture gowns out of natural elements, like reeds and sticks. Over the next several months, she and I wil be collaborating by creating 8×10 tintype images featuring these dresses. For our first outing, we traveled with the Tin Gypsy out to a beautiful little spot right on the outskirts of Portland, OR. The beaches of Sauvie Island provided the fog-shrouded, otherworldly backdrop that we had hoped for. It was a sunny, but quite chilly, day and our models, both modern dancers with high threshholds for discomfort, had to shiver through the 20 minute wait time between shots while I hiked back and forth to the Gypsy darkroom to prepare and process the plates.
