Chris Heidel, Highlife Tin-Types (Columbus, OH)

The Gund invites guests to the gallery to have their pictures taken in the style of 19th-century studio portraiture through a photographic process patented in 1856 by Hamilton Smith, a professor of physics at Kenyon College. Learn about Kenyon’s place in the history of photography and take home a unique keepsake. This project is done in collaboration with Columbus-based artist Chris Heidel, who will craft individual tintype portraits for each guest.
