My interest in photography dates back to my early childhood when Dad blindfolded the windows to set up his darkroom. As by magic pictures appeared out of nothing on sheets of paper, in the faint light of a green bulb. I still remember those fascinating moments as if it were yesterday.
In 1980 I bought my 35mm analog SLR, Canon AV-1, and have been taking pictures ever since. Since a couple of years I got into fine art photography, inspired by someone who is very dear to me. Take pictures not just for myself, to stow away in a dusty album, but pictures worth sharing with the world. For me fotocommunity is a place where I hope to find guideance and inspiration and feedback on my work to help me improve my skills, like I will try to help others where I can.
What is my style? I'm not sure, guess I still have to find out. Pure, sometimes abstract, mainly elements in landscapes that reflect a certain mood or atmosphere. Captured in a way just beyond the ordinary. If I succeeded? That's exactly what I like to hear from you, so please don't hesitate to tell me what you think...
My Canon AV-1 (35mm analog SLR) and the fully manual Canon F1n have been my favorite workhorse for 30 years, together with a small set of lenses and some filters. My film of choice is Kodak Portra, for its natural color tones.
Currently I use a digital rangefinder camera, the Leica M9, for most of my photography.
