This was Tintype Studio in full glory. (is that a proper English way to say that we were ‘at our best’?)
Four days of ethousiastic visitors consuming the lovely sight of seeing a plate appear in fixer.  Sometimes even a soft choir of oh’s and ah’s was heared. Made me smile, and work even harder. For the first time we actually felt appreciated for our craftmanship, not only for the results.
Our collaboration with Alex Timmermans was a perfect fit. And where our passion and the photography-loving visitors met, the actual fun in creating and sharing was felt deeply.
Thank you Alex, thank you visitors and thank you UNSEEN for anchoring this great an unexpected experience within.

Manon prefers the smell of varnish over ether… By the way this is a lovely ambrotype we made of Jo Fraser

Manons temporarily spot for varnishing without wind. Although she loves pizza, this time it’s the perfect delivery box for an XL plate

The result of a beautiful ‘sitter’ a very skilled Collodionist (Alex) with good chemistry and a well varnishing job.

Sweet Summer @ Kroller Muller, July 13th 2013
My first reaction (driving into the Natural Park surrounding the museum):
“Wow, I wish I could live here…”
Second reaction (driving directly with our rental bus into the Sculpture Garden):
“Wow I wish I could camp here…forever”
Third reaction (rinsing our first plate):
“Wow… this is not work, this is holiday!”

On invitation of Kroller Muller’s Sweet Summer, we packed our gear, and drove to the most beautiful area in the Netherlands, the Veluwe.
Unfortunately we don’t have permission (yet) to publish all the lovely plates we made of some sculptures, but here are some results!

Note: July the 27th we’re there again, for wet plates in the sculpture garden! We hope to see you there!

Kiekie No2 Launch
With our ‘humble’ set-up with bright (day)lights, enough booze for the visitors, exhibitants and spectators, we’d manage to get the most divergent reactions. From the “I-love-oldschool-wow-this-is-fantastic!” to the “you-are-so-cheap-ass-not-taking-photography-serious-as-a-business-with-your-funfair-like-act” and all possible comments in between.
I can’t think of something more difficult than shooting photographers. And that’s exactly what we (mostly) did this evening. From that perspective, we’ve put ourselves into the line of fire.
Nice, I won’t hesitate to do that again!
Thank you Fotolab Kiekie!

“Bas” dark yellow glass ambrotype 18 cm x 24 cm
A portrait from our night in TROUW. We love this one. His blue hair appears as if it is blonde. His jewelry refers almost to a long forgotten empire from the past. His eyes closed, and his hands fragile, makes you think he is dreaming about the times he was ruler of the world. Thank you Bas, for this one!
