When I first saw these pictures I thought they were taken decades ago. But the truth is, Joni Sternbach, captured these shots using a 1850s camera. Joni is a photographer from Brooklyn, NY, who ”uses early photographic processes to create contemporary landscapes and seascapes. Her photography has taken her to some of the most desolate deserts in the American West to some of the most prized surf beaches in the world. Sternbach’s solo exhibition, SurfLand, which captures portraits of surfers in tintype, was featured at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, in May 2009″
isn’t she a genius?
