Past meets Present by Giles Clement

Please click the thumbnail above to open the image in a separate window. In this stunning art project, French photographer Giles Clement first takes pictures of his models with the ancient techniques of tintype/ambrotype. He then prints these photographs, with a striking vintage appearance, on large glass plates. Finally, he takes regular photographs of his models holding these glass plates. The result is both beautiful and haunting. More examples in the link. As usual, all rights retained by the artist.
