New Daguerreotypes...

Here are some contemporary daguerreotypes from DagLabs.

There are quite a few people today using this timeless photographic process. The results are beautiful, if not highly interesting because of the contrast of the "old" texture of the photos and the contemporary look of the subjects. There is a stillness that comes across (since the exposure time is long and the people must hold still until the picture is taken) in these photos that seems to slow down the person and our chaotic modern lives.
