GUSDUGGER TINTYPE PHOTOGRAPHS – Birmingham, Ala.
GUSDUGGER TINTYPE PHOTOGRAPHS is a collaborative project by Birmingham-based photographers Cary Norton and Jared Ragland. Specializing in the 19th century wet-plate collodion tintype process and using vintage large format cameras, hand-crafted chemistry, and a mobile darkroom, GUSDUGGER began documenting the people and landscapes of Alabama in 2016.
About the name GUSDUGGER: The Gus Dugger Saloon was a bar and tobacco shop located at 2114 1st Ave N in Birmingham during the 1880s. The upper floor of the two-story brick building was occupied by a photographer's studio, and signage on the facade advertised landscaping, enlarging, and tintypes, as well as an art gallery.
