Time Machine: Little Women’s Cast in Stylized Photo Shoot

Little Women’s cast had their portraits taken in the 19th century photo shoot. The author of the shooting is famous photographer Wilson Webb. The other day, historical shots were posted by the movie’s Instagram account. To create the illusion of a return to the past, “the collodion process” (or “tin type or wet plate photography”) invented “around 1851,” a couple of decades before Little Women’s publication. The photo has to be taken while the tin or plate is wet with light sensitive chemicals and exposed before the plate dries or else the process will not work,” explained Wilson Webb.

The description of the process was stressed as “so much care”:“The photo has to be taken while the tin or plate is wet with light sensitive chemicals and exposed before the plate dries or else the process will not work,” it stated. Webb explained that the actors needed to sit “very still” for their individual photographs, “not because the exposure was long but because the amount of image in focus is less than one inch deep”.

The cast, which includes the entire March family - Joe (Sirsha Ronan), Amy (Florence Pugh), Meg (Emma Watson), Beth (Eliza Scanan), their mother Marmi (Laura Dern) and their father (Bob Odenkirk), Laurie (Timothee Chalamet), Friedrich Bayer (Louis Garrel) and Meg’s husband - John Brooke (James Norton) - would sit for their photographs when they had a few minutes to spare during filming.

“Emma was especially intrigued and said that she wanted a wet-plate studio in her own house,” the photographer shared. Despite the fact that the shooting turned out to be rather difficult, both the actors and Wilson Webb were satisfied with the work done.
