Tampa portrait photographer Joseph Gamble invited me into his tintype studio and darkroom. He is working on a blended memento mori vanitas project. Using a nineteenth-century tintype photographic process, Joseph is exploring modern notions of glamour through the context of mortality. I brought my Sony RX-1 to capture a few images of the process. The first two images show elements of Joseph's darkroom process. The third image is my vision of the circus of glamour and mortality as I found it in the studio.
