Some of the plates we shot at UNSEEN photo fair 2013.
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.
Nothing better than the smell of ether in the morning…

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.

Although proud, it’s always hard o say goodbye to something you love.

“Specially for UNSEEN we will collaborate with Alex Timmermans, a great collodionist who has mastered this technique as no other. For 4 days they we’ll join our skills and different angles on wet plate photography.”
What that means… we don’t know yet, but we ‘re gonna have a lot of fun! Hope the weather will be kind for us.
We’re in the UNSEEN festival program, so that means no entrance tickets are needed for where we are located at Westergas. (in front of the Espresso Fabriek)
