Joni Sternbach

"SurfLand is an ongoing project of contemporary portraits of surfers created using the historic wet-plate collodion process. The photographs are a unique blending of subject matter and photographic technique. Using the instantaneous wet-plate collodion process, I am creating one-of-a-kind tintypes that are imbued with a feeling of ambiguity, timelessness and mystery."
- Joni Sternbach


Captured directly on the shoreline, Joni Sternbach's luminous images possess the immediate quality of a singular print created then-and-there as she captures portraits of contemporary surfers in tintype, a 19th-century technique first used during the American Civil War and little changed since then. The large camera seems to slow down time, so that her subjects possess a distilled and timeless grace and beauty that seems so far removed from the energy, movement and animation we commonly associate with the surfing life.
