Artwork

Paige uses wet collodion tintype photography to capture a staged fictional world, literally. Using a 19th century large format studio camera she photographs genuine antiquities from the 1800s or earlier. 

Due to the nature of the wet-collodion process, duplicates or copies of the images cannot be made. Every tintype is a singular work of art. For more information on purchasing a piece of artwork please contact us at paige.whitcomb.art@gmail.com.
