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.

My first solo exhibition

Some time ago Rob ten Tusscher from Fotogalerie Objektief contacted me if i might be interested in a solo exhibition for my wet plate work.
That oppertunity i took with both hands !

I was a he.. of a job framing everything but for me it was worth every minute.
Yesterday early in the morning, my friend Ferry and me drove to Enschede to be sure everything was ready in time.
At 4 o'clock we opened te exhibition which will last untill March 31.

It also was the first time i showed my 20 x 20" plates. I can tell you, they look just great hanging on a wall.
Many, many thanks to all who made this possible. But most of all i want to thank the visitors from who some had a long drive just to visit my exhibition !
