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.

Made some red windows for my new tent

Because the windows of the Eskimo tent are made of transparent plastic
i had to find a solution to make them red.
Recently a visited a customer of mine who has a welding factory.
For protecting the eyes of the visitors they were using welding curtains.
These were made of UV protective red flexible plastic.
That turned out to be the perfect material for those window covers.
With some practising i managed to stitch them myself
and i am more than happy with the result.
