Tintype Tarantino Portraits


Blood is a fairly ever-present concept in most Tarantino films, so it's appropriate that these excellent portraits have been inspired by it.

Artist Tracie Ching has created three portrait studies evocative of old tintype photographs featuring the classic Tarantino characters Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction), Aldo Raines (Inglourious Basterds) and Django (Django Unchained).

They're printed on French Paper's Steel Grey 100C, with each study have a variant run, featuring unique blood splatter embellishments.

They're on display at the Young Guns Invitational Show at the Hero Complex Gallery in LA, opening tonight (Jan 30th) at 7pm; a limited edition, hand-signed and numbered run will be available for purchase at the exhibition, with any remaining for sale online next week. Head to the Facebook Event for more information and watch the videos below to see how they were created.
