These new photos of Ethan Hawke, Jason Segel, James Franco, and other notable attendees at Sundance Film Festival capture what they might have looked like in the 19th century. At last year's Sundance Film Festival, photographer Victoria Will challenged herself to take tintype portraits of various celebritiesand convinced Bill Hader, Anne Hathaway, Nick Cave, and dozens of others to sit for the process.

Tintype photography requires both speed and patience: Since the plate is wet when it is inserted into the camera, there's a limited window during which it can be used, and any and all movement while the image is being captured will show up in the resulting shot.
