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.

Jan and Tom from Belgium

Last saturday Jan and Tom from Belgium visited my small studio.
They both wanted to give Collodion a try.
Jan is stage manager from Sesamestraat in Holland.
Tom, his son, is sound technician
They had a great sence of humor so we had lot's of fun.
It was a long but constructive day.
