All my work is made by using the in 1851 invented wet plate Collodion process. Which means that beside some very minor adjustments no photoshop has been used. All pictures were made with a 12 x 12" wet plate camera combined with hand made antique Petzval lenses.The whole process has to be done on the spot. So from sensitizing the Plate with chemicals and silver nitrate until the final fixing stage. Done in a mobile darkroom.The book holds the complete series of storytelling until the beginning of 2017 and is published by myself The size of the book is 32 x32 x 2cm and weighs almost 2 kilo. Printed on 240 grams heavy weight paper in duo tone, partial hand binded and every picture is separated by a transparent page like in a old fashioned photo book. Published in 4 languages, English, Dutch, French and Spanish. 700 printed pieces.
