Publisher's Description

Borne Back is the debut book from photographer Victoria Will, featuring her tintype photographs of actors and directors at the Sundance Film Festival.

While planning an assignment at the Sundance Film Festival, Will decided that the vintage look achieved with a large-format camera and the wet-plate process would serve to bring a different light to the faces that we see photographed so often. At the shoot, she set up a mobile darkroom, and developed each plate as it was taken.  Many of the photographs featured in the book were the one and only photograph taken in the sitting.

The publication of this book marks the first time Will’s work has been published in book form, and a marker of her incredible work bridging the gap between commercial photography and fine art.  Consisting of 38 images, Borne Back gives us the blue-eyed, chiseled youth of Robert Redford hiding just underneath the lines etched in to his face.  The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s bassist, Flea, appears to us from the past, seemingly incinerated in chemical flames, and Anne Hathaway channels the ghost of a young Judy Garland.  The book features a foreword from actor Jason Momoa, known for his work on Game of Thrones, and starring in the upcoming feature, Aquaman.
