Captured moments

  • Photographer Will Wilson, left, and portrait subject Aaní Perkins, 18, a Dartmouth freshman from Sitka, Alaska, watch as her image develops on a tintype in a portable darkroom at the Hood Museum in Hanover, N.H., Thursday, Jan. 10, 2020. The tintype process, from the coating of the plate with a collodion emulsion, and sensitizing it to light with silver nitrate, to capturing the image, developing and fixing, must be done within about 20 minutes before the emulsion dries. Wilson gives the finished, one-of-a-kind photographs to each sitter in exchange for a high resolution scan. Images from the week-long residency will be exhibited at the Hood from Jan. 15 to March 29.

  • Will Wilson, the head of Santa Fe Community College's photography program, checks the focus on his large-format camera before taking a portrait for his project, Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange, with collaborator Kali Spitzer at the Hood Museum in Hanover, N.H., Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020. By using the historic tintype process to photograph Native Americans as they present themselves, the photographs aim to create a counterpoint to the work of Edward Curtis, whose early-20th-century photographs aimed to preserve what were perceived as dying cultures.
