“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!
On the 21st of December we shot some nice plates at Nachtbazaar in TROUW, Amsterdam. Some people knew us from Magnet Festival earlier this year, but for a lot of visitors tinypes and ambrotypes were a totally ‘new’ thing. Our first ‘sitter’ that evening was an extraordinary man with his old terrier (which fell asleep during the six sec exposure…). And his picture came out perfectly, very aristocratic look and feel. It’s a shame we don’t have a picture of that plate…
A strange gathering, but nice indeed!
