Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
Lomography celebrates just about anything by means of pictures. And so while we have baked cakes for Grandparents Day, we also scoured archives for heartwarming photos of grandpas, grandmas and their brood. We just want to prove that hanging out with the folks never goes out of style.
