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 Camera

The camera I currently use, is an approx 80 years old belgium Narita oak studio camera.
Max. plate-size is approx 30 x 30 cm.
Max. extension is about 120 cm which makes it suitable for long lenses also.
