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.

Collodion portraits on wall paper....

Maybe some of you remember the shoot I did at Studio JOB.
Job and Nynke asked me to make them some portraits on wet plate.
These portraits were going to be used for their worldwide pr campaign.
Well, those portraits have been used on ... wall paper
For NLXL, a manufacturer of very exclusive wall papers, Studio JOB made some great designs.
On the outside of the sleeves covering the wall paper two of the portraits I made were used.
