Born in: 1949

Biography
Translation in progress

Photography has always
been my great passion, mostly in working as a lecturer and for big companies (e.g.
Rijksmuseum, Amazon). I made a career in photography for many years, analogue
and digital. I came at a point where I couldn't feel the excitement and creativity
anymore and decided to leave
the corporate world in 2014 to
fulfill my lifelong ambition to work from my heart and soul, not in assignment
anymore. The opportunity came along to buy an old postoffice (in Olst, the
Netherlands). We converted the monument (1879) to a gallery, studio and a home.

I wanted to work with
my hands again (needed to feel the materials). I was always attracted to the
old wooden cameras and historic photographic processes. I bought a big 8"x8"
wooden camera and started experimenting with the wet plate collodion process.
With this I could go back to the basis of photography.

The wet plate process
is exciting and full of surprises. You only have one prepared wet plate and one
chance to get it right. Think ahead about composition, light, time and
aperture. It all comes together in one unique moment. This magic moment happens
sometimes and then a one-of-a-kind photo develops in front of your eyes!

It's soul satisfying to work with
this process. It gives meaning to the material I use; I can lose myself for
days in creating images. After developing, my collaboration with artisans,
trying out different techniques to choose the best way to print is a big part
of the creative process.  

My work has been featured in
national and international magazines, books and newspapers.
