Shimmin & Whalen Traveling Tintypists

In spring 2015, the students, faculty, and staff associated with the Arabella Chapman Project sat for portraits produced through tintype technology. Tintypists Robert Shimmin and Mary Whalen worked with us to produce a series of images inspired by Arabella Chapman’s albums. The final images — each unique — are permanent on deposit at the William L. Clements Library. Visitors to this site can see the images by viewing Album III. You can learn more about the work of Shimmin & Whalen here.
