Phillip Seymour Hoffman - Park City, Utah - 4x5 Tintype
The last few days have been surreal, this image has become a part of history, it’s a hard thing to wrap my head around.
An incredible tintype portrait of Phillip Seymour Hoffman by Victoria Will with processing by Josh Wool.
I have followed Josh’s work since I first joined tumblr and before he moved to New York. I know this was taken by Victoria but every time I visit Josh’s page I am amazed, startled, seduced by his work, esp. his portraits. I always knew he was an artist, now everyone else does too.
This image is so haunting. Taken with a camera that makes Hoffman look like a man from the 19th century, traveling through time to the 21st century right before he left us. We’ve lost one of the greats.
One of the greats indeed.
PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN. Never Forget.
