Will Wilson will set up a working portrait studio at the Museum. Using a large format camera and the historic wet plate collodion process, the artist invites the public to engage in the ritual interchange that is the photographic studio portrait. As a gesture of reciprocity, the artist will gift the sitter the tintype produced during the exchange with the caveat that he be granted a non-exclusive right to create and use a high resolution scan of their image for his own artistic purposes.
Everyone is welcome to meet and watch Wilson at work, but due to the time consuming nature of the process only 12 attendees will have the opportunity to sit for a portrait. Sitters will be selected at random from the list of registrants at midnight on May 5th and sent a time slot for their session.
