Along with the great assortment of motorbikes gathered for the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride this fall, another old-world artist showed up to capture the images not on film or SD card, but on silver-coated metal plate. Using the tintype process popular in the mid 1800’s, photographer Anton Orlov creates images that reflect the soul of the subject like no other medium. Of course when the subject is a classic Triumph, soul isn’t easy to miss!
