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.

"George from Ghana"

This is a picture from my friend George from Ghana.
He's wearing traditional clothes from Ghana.
Normally he's ALWAYS smiling, so posing like this was rather difficult to do for him...
