Almost all of the photographs on Joseph Wyman Brown’s website are of faces, people staring directly out of the frame in a way that is at once striking and slightly unsettling. He makes his photos using wet plate tintype, a process that hasn’t been widely used for nearly a century, and which produces contrast and detail not found in today’s digital photography — at least not without significant retouching. The photographer’s involvement in the artistic process of tintype is obvious: look closely around the ragged edges of each image and you can literally see his fingerprints etched into the emulsion.

Acknowledged as one of the finest photographers in abstract environmental photography, Brett Weston was fascinated with forms. His strength is “environmental abstractionism,” yet some of his photographs are representational too, looking exactly like, say, a balcony or a chunk of ice.

“Try to forget about the titles and focus on the work,” said Lauren Richman, assistant curator of photography at the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University, where she oversees the Henry Holmes Smith Archive. “Weston’s form, tone and line are mesmerizing.”
