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.

Big boys playground...........Bièvres

Yesterday we had the oppertunity to visit the Bievres fair.
It's one of the largest photographica open air fair in the world.
We arrived at 11 and already lots of people we looking for interesting lenses, camera's. photographs, tripods etc.
If you are looking for something special, this is THE place to be.
This is realy THE playground for big photographic boys.
We planned to stay two days but unfortunately i had to leave early.

Although it was VERY warm ( 32 degrees C !!) we had a great time.
We met some very nice "wet platers" like Garrett from the USA, John Brewer for the UK, Matthias Olmeta and Fabrice Pejout from France.
Just have a look at there websites.
