The heart and mind are the true lenses of the camera. Photography has no rules; it is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it is achieved. 

Giles Clement is a contemporary photographer. He enjoys to do the things in an old-fashioned way and also uses camera equipment made in the 1800s.

"My tintype images are created using equipment made more than 160 years ago, from an era when cameras were made by craftsmen in small shops and lenses were designed using slide rules, experience and feel. The inherent flaws of these instruments lend themselves perfectly to my view of a beautifully imperfect world" writes the photographer on his website.

His some of the pictures below are both haunting and arresting:
