... about my gallery ...


I'll post a proper gallery with my work here in due time. Here is just a small example for now. Please take loot at alt-photo also. Here you can see some of my alt-photo prints as well.

Deventer, The Netherlands, March 2017 (Canon F1-N, 55/1.2, Fomapan 100 in Ilfotec DD-X)

I made these images during a walk with a poet in her neighborhood. She pointed out some places I then shot for her to make a poet about that image.

And one pinhole image (Ondu 6x6, Fuji NPC 160 in C-41, exposure 40 seconds handheld):


A portrait of our Devon & Cornwall sheep named Charley
(Canon T70, 50/1.8, Ilford FP4+ in homebrew Caffenol-C-M)


My 1st attempt at an in-camera multiple exposure, while testing my RB67-PRO with 127mm lens.
I sat on a bench at central station (Utrecht, The Netherlands) and tried a multiple exposure as an experiment, to see how this will work out. It was hard to keep the camera steady, transport film and cock shutter without using a tripod. I measured the available light, then divided the shutter speed by 5 and made 5 exposures on one negative. 
(Kodak Tri-X, total of 5 exposures @ f8 & 1/125 sec., developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X straight scan from negative)


Bronica SQ-B with 40 mm lens, Ilford FP4+ developed in Caffenol-C-M (home brew):

This is one of my very first images shot with my Bronica SQ-B camera and a 80 mm lens on Fuji NPH400 roll film. I bought this camera new in 2002: my first MF camera and I still love it!

Yes: I do use a digital camera (Nikon D200) and Photoshop sometimes:

This image was shot at the NDSM Wharf in Amsterdam (about 2004), while it was still wild and only inhabited by "true artists" alone.


And yes: I use my iphone as well - for snap shots and making digital inter-negatives:

"... avoiding the common illusion that creative work depends on equipment alone ..." (Ansel Adams in his book "The Camera")

"... I enjoy vintage cameras as “users,” rather than imprisoning them in some display case"

"... It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight ...

"... but I just love the good natured mirth you provided ..." (a complement I enjoyed receiving)
