Hollis Brown Thornton



I’m pretty picky about the old photo desctructo artists I like. There are a truckload of tintype-trashing posers out there thinking they’re adding to the world of valuable images instead of subtracting from it. But this, guy, Mr. Hollis Brown Thornton is the real deal. He paints or marks up images sometimes to the point where there is barely anything recognizable from the original. That kind of reckless abandon is the sure sign of noble intentions, as far as I’m concerned. Love it.
