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.

An impression of the first European Collodion Weekend

Hello all,

Underneath you will find a brief impression of the first European Collodion Weekend.
It has been a huge success. Many wetplaters from all over Europe joined us last weekend.
People from : Italy, France, Letvia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Russia, Belgium, Holland etc.
It was just great to talk with these people.
Just because we all share the same passion : wet plate photography.
See you all next time !

Pictures were made by Hessel Folkertsma, Henk Peters and myself
