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 found objects 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.

Memories

This series illustrates how the objects people use become artifacts that remain, while the people that own them come and go like memories. A double exposure technique is used to create the ghost-like images in the "Memories" series.
