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.

The gift....

Today I was invited for the opening of the new gallery of Hans and Jacqueline Persoon.
The problem was, what to give them as a present ....
The idea came up to make a wet plate of their 2 children, Rick and Judith.
So yesterday evening we made... this plate.
I can tell you, it was a huge, unexpected surprise for their parents!
Special thanks to Arjen Went and Manon Navarro for helping me with this idea.
