Ottavi returns to Bunnell for photography residency

Fairbanks photographer Adam Ottavi returns to Homer and Bunnell Street Arts Center for a month-long residency in March. During his residency, Ottavi will create 60 tintype portraits for a fundraiser, the Bunnell Street Tintype Portrait Project. For a $150 donation, anyone can have a tintype portrait taken and receive a 4-inch-by-5-inch photograph taken using the antique tintype process. Two tintypes will be taken, one for the donor and one to be displayed in a show at Bunnell and eventually donated to the Pratt Museum. A reception for the Tintype Portrait Project is 5-7 p.m. March 27.

Tintype is the photography technique used by Civil War photographers and produces an image on a thin sheet of tin. Space for the project is limited to 60 participants. To sign up, contact Bunnell at 235-2662.
