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.

European Collodion Weekend ECW 2014

Dear wet platers, 
It’s official now!
The next European collodion Weekend ECW  will take place during the weekend of May 3-4
For now we have about 50 participants which also will be about the max.
I want it to be a gathering, not a festival….;)

Also this year wet platers coming from all over the World.
So maybe next year we will have to name it WCW?
The goal is to learn from each other, show gear and skills and just having fun.
May 3th will be exclusive for the participants.

On Sunday May 4th the event is open for public.
Free access.
So mark your agendas, May 4th 2014!!

Many thanks to Jan Dijkshoorn of Burogram for the design of the 2014 poster
