1. Desert blooms.

    Tenement is a collective formed by three young Brooklyn artists with a shared obsession.

    After experimenting with collaborations in a variety of formats, the trio fell for the collodion tintype process of 19th-century portraiture, and an archaic love affair was born.

    Tenement just launched a new Kickstarter project to fund a documentary expedition, traveling witha  team of ecologists to survey the Mojave desert. In a nod to pioneering American naturalists such as George Englemann and Charles Wright, Tenement will make beautiful and evocative images to illustrate the ecologists’ field notes, bringing art and science together in a series of dispatches from the desert.
