The TinType Studio @ Gekkenhuis, VLLA, Amsterdam




2012 Tintype Studio @ ‘Gekkenhuis The Birtday Edition’ in VLLA (Amsterdam)

And of course we agreed on tintyping at this festival! There were birthday cakes, a lot of balloons, and free entrance if you were dressed up as a present. A lot of nice food (great burgers!) and of course music, games and storytelling. I was glad that there weren’t any Clowns invited… They scare the hell out of me! We decided to build a set-up with an old frame where all visitors could sit behind. Before taking a picture a haircut (by Vagabond Collective) was adviced. We made around 30 tintypes that day and evening!

Because a lot of the ‘models’ are friends or friends of friends mostly from Amsterdam, we organised a Tintype-Pick-Up-Party at our studio a few days later, with homemade food and drinks.
