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.

Nice find at fair


Today is visited a very large collecting fair in Utrecht, Holland.
I hoped to find some wet plate related things like camera's, lenses etc.
But couldn't find anything like that.
BUT, i found something extremely rare.
A beautiful small mahogany box containing a kristal glass perfume bottle and a ambrotype.
Even the original key came with it and all is in excellent shape.
