Get your tintype portrait taken by photographer Anton Orlov in his Photo Palace Bus, a mobile dark room, built into an old school bus, dedicated to the preservation of analog photography. The Photo Palace Bus is rolling up to our front doors on Friday, November 1st(remember, the gallery will be closed) for a brief stop on its return trip to California after a 12,000-mile cross-country journey.  Read all about it below.

Where: In front of the San Jose ICA, 560 South 1st Street 
Why: Anton is a good friend of the ICA and a talented photographer. We were thrilled when he called and asked if he could park the Photo Palace Bus in front of the ICA and make tintype portraits for our friends and their friends.
