Sophie Caretta‘s tintype photos capturing the magic and emotions from movie ‘The beguiled’.
The artist used the wet collodion process for documenting film’s main characters on the Louisiana set to give that unique look of the life at the time.
“Despite its shooting disadvantages and its laborious technique, its aesthetic qualities with imperfections define a mood and style grounded in the historical, physical qualities of photography. It’s a moving process where anything can happen; scratches, erosion, pitting, stains can appear and/or disappear in a magical way. The interplay among clarity, strangeness, dreaminess, and wildness is the perfect reflection of ‘The Beguiled.”
