Antique Bottle Collection Photo Series / by Jim Sincock

Most who have been following my work for a long time have seen bottles from my antique bottle collection make it into my various still life photo series. My collection is fairly modest and most bottles were picked based on how they might look in one of my photographs, or the quality of light the give when I shine a studio spotlight through them.

My still life photos of antique bottles had always been a popular item when I was doing art festivals. Some customers told me that they also collected bottles, and others just loved old bottles and the way I photographed them.

This new photo series will focus mostly on images of individual antique bottles and will be photographed with an antique large format camera and lens using a paper negative process (as seen above.) I plan to offer both silver gelatin contact prints (4x5, 5x7, or 8x10) as well as archival pigment prints. 

If you are a collector of antique bottles, or just love them, perhaps you will be interested in purchasing prints from my Antique Bottle Collection Photo Series. I will add prints to the shop in the near future, but if you are interested now, feel free to contact me for more info.
