Photo LA and great new updates to our site


Hello everyone,

It was good to see everyone at the London Photograph Fair in the beginning of November. Sales were few and far between, but it happens. Also, thanks to the all who came for Photovintage at Galleri Vivienne. That day was lively and starting at a more relaxed hour in the a.m. Thanks to those who purchased something or sold me something.

Currently we are getting ready for Photo L.A., which will be held on January 15-18 at the Merchandise Mart downtown.

Upcoming shows ….
We have been working on updating our website and adding more images to the store.You can now search for tagged images and filter your search for a price range.
December is always a quiet month and we are working on the next show which will be Photo la 2015 on January 15 – 18. See the schedule here:
Photo LA

I hope to see you there.

New York Photo Show


Hello everyone,

It was great seeing all who could make it to the London Photograph Fair and later at the DC Antique Photo & Postcard Show. I haven’t been to that show since 1983, so it was nice to be back. Luckily for me a cancellation made it possible for me to put some images out as well on just a moment’s notice. Thanks Tom Rall for making that happen. Also great to see the usual suspects, many of us still here who have been doing this since the ’70s. I look forward to seeing many of you in New York next Friday and Saturday at the New York Photo Show.

We have 100s of new images with us this time, so do come by and have a look at them and some that might still be there from last time, if you couldn’t make up your mind, then.

The London Photograph Fair

Hello everyone,

The 2014 Spring schedule has begun. Classic Photographs LA was a great success thanks to the many visitors and collectors, new and old. Thank you one and all for coming to see our selection, chatting with us and taking some images home with you. Thanks to the engine behind it Amanda, Richard and Michael! I didn’t buy very much on that trip, but have been busy online picking up new images.

The next event is in just 10 days, the London Photograph Fair on March 9. See below:
Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury

Coram Street
London WC1N 1HT
+44 (0) 871 942 9222


Sunday, March 9: 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Admission $10.00
Northern Light Gallery will be presenting our typical mix of varied, interesting and beautiful images from the 19th and 20th centuries. Please give me a buzz if there is anything you’d like to see, specific or general.

This first trip will then place me in L.A. to decide which images to bring to the New York Photo Show, so please let me know now if there is something I should bring with. On the way home I will be in D.C. for the Photo & Postcard show, but not exhibiting. Hopefully I’ll find some good images to move along to new homes.

Hope we meet up at one of these occasions to share images, a drink, a meal or whatever we can find time for!

When Helmut Gernsheim wrote this about Tintypes in his History of Photography, it was quite understandable. He was writing from the perspective of the English Ferrotypes, which never became too popular or too good. Furthermore, his important history centred around the work of Fox-Talbot, Fenton, and many of the great names that stand asmonuments to photographic achievement. What a tough act to follow for the humble Tintypist.


If we take another view of the matter, suddenly Tintypes don’t look so hideous. As Tintypes became enormously popular in the U.S. during the Civil War and the 75 or so years following, they were used to depict every aspect of life in America. They were easier to make than Daguerreotypes or Ambrotypes, and the customer did not have to return for prints as with negative/positive processes. It was not the first instant process, but it was certainly the one more people could afford.

Being easier to make and less expensive opened the door for a new type of photographer, an immense variety of subject matter and a different ways of looking at / photographing almost everything. Have a look at these 100 or so images and see how much people enjoyed being Tintyped!
