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.

I have the following early petzval for sale:
Durant Paris 330 mm f4.3. It has a waterhouse slot but in it's history
someone took out the internal ring to make it faster. (I still have that ring)

It comes with it's original Brass lens cap and flange!
A chip of the glas of the inner rear element. ...
Nice early French lens. Asking price €995.-

It covers 18 x 24cm at infinity and about 25 x 25cm at close portrait.
