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.

New German magazine, all about analogue photography

Just a few days ago a brand new German Photo magazine has been published.
It is called:  Photoklassik.
This magazine is filled with loads of information dedicated to analogue photography.
So no modern digital stuff !
I am very proud they included an article about me and my passion for wet plate photography.
Below you you can see the article ( in German....).
if you need some more information about the magazine, just have a look at there website.
Good thing is that this magazine is also available in the Benelux !
