First Warzone Tintype Since US Civil War

Ed Drew served as an aerial gunner in a USAF rescue squadron, but while in Afghanistan, he also took what are believed to be the first photos taken on a battlefield with the tintype photographic process since Matthew Brady’s work documenting the Civil War.

The results are fascinating, and I dig that someone went to the trouble to use an “archaic technology”. It produced results no chintzy Instagram filter could have achieved.
