Not gonna lie: it’s ALWAYS a risk to pounce on analog work before it’s actually completed. When it’s not digital and there are no second chances and the process is exceptionally tricky, as a photo editor (and photographer), you get, well, nervous!
But since I knew it was Victoria Will behind the camera, I couldn’t have run more ferociously head-first into asking her to share these with us on Esquire.com…before they were shot.
And holy hell, these are just way more than I could have ever expected!
If you don’t take risks (like Victoria did here with some seriously awesome darkroom help by Josh Wool), you just don’t get the extraordinary images that set you apart.
So well done!
These are not 1860s ladies and gentleman who look and dress like your favorite actors and actresses. This is Michael C. Hall, Anna Kendrick, Jesse Eisenberg, Elle Fanning, and William H. Macy, in exclusive tintype photographs painstakingly taken by photographer Victoria Will at Sundance Film Festival.
