Invented in 1851 by sculptor Frederick Scott Archer, tintypes were the first prominent form of photography. One-of-a-kind, they are handmade by pouring light-sensitive chemistry onto metal plates before exposing them in antique cameras. The final product is an image made of pure silver that will last for centuries to come.
