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 making of the ECW 2013 group photo

As you might know I recently organized the second edition of the European Collodion Weekend.
More than 40 wet plate artists from all over the world gathered in Veldhoven
to share their knowledge and skills about this beautiful process.
On Sunday morning we had some time to make a group photo.
As far as we know its a world record as never before so many
wet platers have been photographed on a single plate.
In the coming weeks I will post some more pictures about this great event, so stay tuned.
