I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.

This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

  1. Prachtig materiaal en werk! Zag je advertentie op Sign.nl, maar kan je niet helpen. Maar petje af voor je werk. Heel mooi.
    Een manier van werken waar ik ook naar toe wil als ik meer stationair ben wat werk betreft.
