1860’S TINTYPE PHOTOGRAPHS OF SUNDANCE CELEBRITIES

For this year’s Sundance Film Festival, American photographer Victoria Will, who has already covered the festival for the past four years, decided to approach this one differently. Having access to Hollywood’s brightest talent, she chose to shoot portraits in the antique 1860′s style using the tintypes technique. The images are made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of iron which is coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and then used as the support for the photographic emulsion. The results are haunting, beautiful and strange. Some actors take to this style incredibly well – Elijah Woods and William H. Macy look like come straight from yesteryear. Will’s images were used by Esquire in a feature and you can see them all below.
