Like surfing, Sternbach's work is unique and performative. Her studio is the beach; her exposed tintype plates processed in a chemical "fixer" bath in daylight for all to see. Like individual wave rides, each of her images is enhanced by varying and unpredictable conditions.--Yahoo News
nostalgic and clear-eyed, romantic and dispassionate.--Diane Cardwell "The New York Times, Lens "
In the wrong hands the length of the exposure and development process the relationship with the subject can turn tense, but here she maintains a graceful balance of trust that leads to gripping images. For this project the wet-plate process truly shines, conceptually as well as aesthetically.--Evan L. "Onwardphoto.org "
With its oversized dimensions, Surf Site Tin Type is probably better suited for a place of pride on your coffee table versus a day on the sand, but this book is a must for any and all beach lovers. It's a beautiful ode to the surf life from photographer Joni Sternbach, who spent the past decade capturing portraits of contemporary surfers around the world. What makes this such a stunner is Sternbach's use of tintypes -- a 19th-century wet-plate, on-site form of photography -- whose resulting patina adds a romance and artistry to her images; it's a refreshing and welcome move in today's digital quick-snapshot terrain.--The Editors "Tory Daily "
