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.

"Manon Navarro"

A few weeks ago Manon and Arjen joined me in my studio for making some nice wet plates.
They are running a fantastic studio for image-architecture in Amsterdam.
Real "photoshop-artists". Have a look at http://www.wentennavarro.nl/

I already posted Arjen's picture but i forgot to post this picture of Manon (sorry for that Manon.....).

I can tell you from my own experiences : she's full of energy !!!
They are already collecting lot's of things for there wetplate adventure, so soon they are able to show there own plates. Stay tuned !!

Note she has a brow spot in her right eye which makes it a bit darker than her left eye !
