This Exhibition Is a Total Trip—Through Time

It’ll change you. Time-travel to Victorian England with A Royal Passion: Queen Victoria and Photography, when photography was new and everyone looked mighty fine in sepia and silver. The band Vernian Process shows how it’s done.

Wondering about that group shot in black and white? It’s a bona fide old-school tintype created in a traveling darkroom on the Getty Center plaza by photography wizard Luther Gerlach. To see how he made it and check out more of the band and their fantastic steampunk costumes, head over to Flickr.

Music by Vernian Process. Video by Christopher Sprinkle.
