Dates:  1963, 9 April -
Born:  US, TX, Spur
Active:  Global
Contemporary American photographer who has documented cowboys, mummies and other subjects using tintypes.
A collection of his tintypes is held at the Wittliff Gallery of Southwestern & Mexican Photography(Albert B. Alkek Library on the campus of Texas State University-San Marcos). 
Artist statement: 
I use the tintype process and other historic processes in conjunction with collected audio, video to try and create one of a kind images that have the added benefit of incorporating other experiences. This has allowed me to create not only unique photographs but also memories of the experience by engaging the subject in other ways. In the end it becomes an intimate collaboration that gives me a connectedness to the people I photograph and also creates one of a kind images as each is handmade.

Supplemental information

Robb Kendrick is a photographer whose work appears regularly National Geographic as well as other publications. Kendrick's true passion has become wet plate photography, a historic photo technique used during the mid-19th century. The tintype photos made with the wet-plate process are each one of a kind as they are all handmade from start to finish. His most recent wet plate project documents the working cowboy in 14 Western States, Mexico and Canada for National Geographic December 2007 issue. The photos are collected in a new book Still: Cowboys at the Start of the 21st Century. Kendrick's first book of tintypes was Revealing Character, which is also a touring exhibition that is being featured at eight major museums in the U.S.
Kendrick moved to San Miguel de Allende, a colonial town in Central Mexico two years ago with his wife, writer Jeannie Ralston, and their two boys. They intend for their kids to become bi-cultural and they wanted more time together as a family. Kendrick is also pursuing personal projects in tintype in Mexico.
