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.

Great Magazine about wet plate photography

Recently I was offered a publication in Fine Art Photo, a German photo magazine.
During our e-mail contact the publisher, Rudolf Hillebrand, decided to publish a complete magazine all on wet plate!
So beside of some great portfolios from several outstanding International wet platers, this magazine also contains a huge amount of information about the whole process told by Vernon Trent, about the needed equipment, and about the ECW (European Collodion Weekend).
But also a nice article with "behind the scene" info of some of my plates.
The magazine is written in German and Partly also in English!
Portfolios of the following wet platers are in the magazine:
Craig Tuffin,
Ed Ross,
Jody Ake,
Dave Aharonian,
Andreas Reh,
Ana Tornel
Borut Peterlin
Vernon Trent
and mine.
It's only € 14,95 + € 6,= shipping costs.
Almost 150 pages completely filled with wet plate information and hardly any advertising!!!
A must have for every wet plater.
