Deadly Nightshade
‘Nachtschade’ (nightshade) is known to be deadly. These musicians ask the impossible from you: a shoot at cafe De Richel (Nes Amsterdam, probably the smallest, most unreachable street in town) and before you could say no, you’ve been working on their album cover for hours and hours, smoking 50 cigarettes in a row. But you will be rewarded with a sincere smile, music & on-demand poetry and… a lifetime being on their guestlist. Thanks Maarten, Bram, Guy and Reid.

Jeff
This year already is full of unexpected encounters. This is Jeff from North Carolina, US. He came by to check us out, because he was around due to a pinhole gathering. The thing is that Arjen tends to shoot everybody who is enthousiastic about photography. And despite the pile of varnishing I have to do afterwards I love that habit.

‘The Light Recordings’
Chapter #1: Coffee : Caffè Sotto 6’32’’

‘The Light Recordings’ is a series of artworks and installations about recording time and compressing it in a single or a series of images/objects.

Chapter I, ‘Coffee’, is where we record different brewing methods with Wet Plate Collodion technique. One record has a shutter time as long as it takes to brew from start untill end. Caffè Sotto 6’32’’ took us 6 minutes and 32 seconds to shoot and brew.
In collaboration with:
www.coffeelab.nl

Special thanks to:

A framed fine art repro of this tintype is now ‘on the road’  with the Coffee & Arts project (http://www.coffeeartproject.com/Amsterdam/Gallery.aspx)

“Ron” tintype 18 cm x 24 cm
We, as collodionistic freaks, have (secret) gatherings. Fotografica Fair in Nieuwegein is one of these moments where we meet our fellow lens hunters, collectors and other interesting people (not so secret). Last March we did some demo’s with Alex Timmermans. For that we used Alex’ Dallmeyer 3A to ‘shoot’ some visitors (which were not so many, as it was a perfect Saturday for the first BBQ of the year). This is one of our favorites plates that day. I love the way this plate appears simple & clean but still friendly and soft with a bokeh that makes me drool.

Caffè Sotto: the maker
This is Mike, the brains and designer behind this lovely machine. Not only is this machine a joy to look at, but it makes a perfect ritual and a very nice and subtle coffee at the table, if you like. It’s produced in our own little country (Netherlands), but inspired by the social aspect of the Italian coffee culture.
Thanks Jeroen (www.coffeelab.nl) & Mike, for sharing this beautiful design with us, and Mike, for the privilege to shoot you a portrait.

Aude et Sébastien, two wonderful persons intriged by the collodion process too. That is passion + passion combined with a fascination for crafts in general, accompanied with some lunch and wine. The recipe for a super inspiring afternoon.
