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 adventure in Paris during FOTOFEVER

The day after, back to earth................

Sunday evening we arrived home from a long and very inspiring weekend in Paris.
My work was exhibited at FOTOFEVER by The Unlimited Grain Gallery.
They sold several pictures of my work so it was a great success!!
First of all my thanks to the Gallery keepers Hilde Bodbijl and Frans Peter Verheyen who believed in my work from the beginning and offered me the opportunity to show my work during the fair.

Also to my good friend and "manager" Ferry van der Vliet for all the back stage support.
And let's not forget the buyers of my work who encouraged me to make some new work during 2014.

We have met some very friendly and inspiring people like Jack Montgomery, a fantastic photographer, Alexander Scholz who's publishing fantastic books of an amazing quality, Trevor E. R. Yerbury and Faye Yerbury and their lovely friends who we had a good chat with on photography and workshops (love their work!!!), Anna Alix Koffi, also a publisher who invited us for a lovely party on Saturday evening, our neighbours, the owners of Galerie Pennings who we had a good laugh with!, "the golden girls" Renée Jacobs and Wendy Hicks, J Schmidt, Ana Tornel, Frabice Pejout etc.

And of course the other artists represented by our gallery; Jacqueline Roberts and her lovely family, Mirjam Appelhof and Jeroen van Haren and Claudio Santambrogio.
Sorry if I forgot to mention somebody.... as I mentioned before. It's the day after...

Thank you all for your friendship and kind works.
I received loads of positive energy!!

See you all soon!
