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.

Some news...

Hi All, 

It has been quite some time ago that I have posted something on my blog.
Really need to start blogging again. 
Problem is that you have to keep up with facebook, instagram etc,
Loads of things happened in the past period. Many exhibitions, new contacts, travelling etc.
But from now on I will try to inform you again every few weeks.

 This post is about a picture I had in mind already for a few years.
Wanted to do something with a grand piano, water, nature etc.
Don't ask me why. It was just a crazy idea which popped up in my mind.

Sometimes ideas can take a long time before I am able to life on a plate.
In this case it took more than 2 years…

Always the biggest problem is to find the right location and the needed props.
By coincidence I was able to buy the grand piano and because of the extremely warm weather we had in the past few months the water level at the spotted location was at very low.
So perfect combination for this new plate.

The making of video
