This 5x7 tintype was created last week, shot in studio with a 4A century studio camera and a Copal 3 360mm lens. The pearl has long been a symbol of unblemished perfection. To some ancient cultures the pearl was a symbol of the moon and it's magical powers. In this tintype, the woman of the moon is wrapped in pearls to link the unique perfection of the gemstones with the unique perfection that lives in each individual human spirit. No one pearl is like the next, and no one soul is like the last.
