Jeff Howlett is the director and producer of the acclaimed documentary 'A Band Called Death,' and expatriate of the mid-1990s Burlington music scene as frontman for alt/sludge metal bands Slush, Five Seconds Expired and Non Compos Mentis. Big Heavy World and Radio Bean encourage local musicians of all ages to get their tintype taken by a homecoming local colleague.

Introduced in the mid-19th century, each tintype photograph is individually created by coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing a metal plate as the subject sits for the portrait session. Many Civil War era photographs were created with this historic technology, which provides a hauntingly beautiful and permanent image especially suitable for heirloom portraits of individuals, families, and bands.
