Gerald Peter’s Gallery – John Coffer Video

Last year John Coffer had a show at Gerald Peter’s Gallery in New York City of his Daily Tintype project. A fine video of John working with his large camera on the coffer farm was made for the occasion.  I did not have the pleasure of seeing the show in person, but I did have the opportunity to have John tell me about the plate making progress via letters we shared last year.  Checking in with his web site today has reminded me that it has now been a very long time since I last wrote to him.

The image above is a mammoth plate by John which was hand colored with powdered pastel prior to varnishing with sandarac varnish.
