ORIGINAL WORKS FOR SALE

Over the next pages I present original photographs created with the Camera Obscura (“pinhole” cameras) and Photogram technique.
The images were all developed in the traditional way, with chemicals in the darkroom.
Each image has a photo paper negative which can be printed a maximum of 13 times. There is no digital process involved in my works—only light, chemicals, and photo paper. Because they are developed by hand each image is unique.
Photos are signed, dated, and numbered. Prices depend on several variables—colour or black & white print, Bayrte or plastic paper, size, and print quality.

THE 4 ELEMENTS

These series gave me a new approach while using “Photogram” technique. A new way of creating photography image without using light as an energy - but insted - heat energy for The “Calorigram” technique.

During more then 5 years I worked over the 4 Elements series using only light or heat as energy to create those images. Water & Air with light energy and Earth & fire with heat energy. No camera is involved in the process.

All the works were done on black & white carton Baryte paper, using fire as heating energy - a Calorigram, and artificial light as energy for Photogram. The colours in the images are a result of an chemical reaction between the photo paper and the energy which come from the objects (stons & metal pieces). Some of the “Water” elements are blue! - Because I coloured it with a bleu pigments.

Finely, I present these series to the public in a very attractive prices. Only the “Water” element have 5 examples of each image, because this series is a positive images. All other elements: Air, Fire and Earth are unique - Negative images.

Prices of the “4 elements series:
1. Water element : 40€ - 130€ (dependent the size & quality)
2. Air element : 40€
3. Earth element : 40€ - 90€ (dependent the size& quality)
4. Fire element : 150€ - 550€ (dependent the size& quality)

 

NEGEV - LIFE IN THE DESERT

This project was create for the 150 anniversary of Photography in 1989, sponsored by the minister of culture of France in Paris. This project gave me the possibility to spend several weeks during two years in the Negev desert with my darkroom and discovering another world of the nomad people - the Beduins.

Here again 6 years after photographing Jerusalem, I realised the marge between the subject - the way of life of the beduin people comparing to our modern style of life, - in comparison with my pinhole cameras (Camera Obscure) -an ancient technological in the “Hi- Tec" photography world today.

Price: Because of the bad condition of working in the desert, negatives are in bad shape, so there are different qualities of the images. Prices will be between 80€ to 130€ per image.

JERUSALEM (through the pin hole camera)

Most of the images in Jerusalem I did in 1984 which was just my beginning years using the Camera Obscure out doors, and the first time in a big city.
For me it was like a discovery, like going back in time tunnel to the bibalic city of Jerusalem with the pinhole cameras (the Camera Obscura technique) on the streets of Jerusalem.

Many new aspects which I didn’t have before while working in my studio came out. Movement of people and vehicle on the streets are disappear, shadow and light of buildings creating dramatic composition, the reaction of the public to the way I’m photographing and working in different and difficult condition sometime.

Finely it was a perfect marge between the subject and it’s atmosphere and the Camera Obscura technique. looking back on some images take me back also in history.

Price:
Because of different size and the images the prices are between 40€ for small format to 130€ the biggest format.

 

NEW YORK through the CAMERA OBSCURA

While living and photographing in New York City my main goal was to try and give a “personification” to the buildings and the skyscraper in the city, by curving the perspective lines of the buildings and creating kind of “human-contact” between them.

I was choosing several places which I use to come back several times during my time there to photograph again and again. One of my favourite places was the W.T.C. - those two high towers look like a couple for me.

Beside I can’t ignore the human people which live and work there walking or visiting in that “concrete jungle” and so I try to put them in another perspective in comparison to the skyscraper.

Price:
Black & white images from 25€ - 45€ (depended the print quality)
Colour images from 120€ - 180€ (depended the print quality)

“NATUROGRAM“ (photogram technique)

Naturogram is a series of work which made with the first photography technique - the “Photogram” . There is no camera involved during the process, only light as energy, photo paper and objects which are posed on the paper during the lighting.

I call this series “Naturogram” not only because I use nature as my photographic objects, also because the way of developing the images. I developed those works in a “nature” way and not in a trades fool of chemicals - like in classic photography. By using my hands with different objects like brushes,brooms, combs which are soaked with developer - a new environment is creating.
There are 2 series, one print on Plastic black & white paper and the second series was print over Carton Baryte black & white paper. Some of the images were pass sepia or other colour toning.

Obviously the prices are different as well because of the paper quality. Each image is a unique piece even there are the same object, limited to 5 example max. each image.

Prices:
Plastic paper image: 35€ - 50€ (dependent the size)
Baryte carton paper: 75€ -90€ (dependent the size)

 

150 years of photography in Europe

In the year 1989, Europe celebrated 150 years anniversary of photography
Many different projects were done in different countries and so, I took part in different projects through the year.

One of the biggest project for me was to photograph Dublin and west of Ireland. Traveling from Amsterdam with my van car (my darkroom) and all my cameras and the equipment which I needed to developing the images through England to Ireland.
Discovering a new place using an old - primitive technique is all ways exciting… You take the attention of the public! The people in the city or in the country side are not use to see a photographer using just metal cans as cameras, van- car which functions as darkroom….. and so interesting stories and relationships are developing.

Creating communication with the local people is one of the most exciting experience in traveling.

Prices of images:
Black & white print: 35€.
Colour print: 120€ - 150€

 

 

AMSTERDAM - The beginning

In Amsterdam I start to develop the Camera Obscura technique….this work which I present here are the beginning of my career as a pinhole photographer.

This way of working was for me a “discovery” to a new photographic world. A world, were I could just with an metal rotten can create a “new reality” out of the existing. Curving (Distortion) lines of perspective and creating a movement with long exposure are the typic character of “Pin Hole” camera. Most of my works I did over RC colour paper, which I use also as negatives, that why the colours on the images are different. Because of not using film as negative I create “distortion” as well in the colours.

Finely after almost 40 years of experience with that way of working I’m publishing those works on my web-sit together with a lists of the images so each person who like an image could buy an original piece - hand made, sign and date by me in a very attractive prices.

Prices:
Color image: 120 € - 150 €,
Black & white image 35€.
Shipping cost are not including in the price.

 

Germany in the ’80 - by pin hole camera

During the ’80 while living in Amsterdam, I had several photography projects in Germany but the most exciting project I had was for the “Stern” magazine.

Doing kind of a “reportage” over Germany during one month, using my pinhole cameras and a van which converted to a darkroom. The story “Ein ganze land im Iemer” was published in “Stern” on 22 Mai 1986.

Most of the works which I present here I did during this journey in Germany for the “Stern”. But big part of the works are made in Hamburg because those years I had a presented gallery in Hamburg (“Art & Book”) and that why there are many images of that city.

Finely 35 years after this Journey, I’m publishing those works on my web-sit together with a lists of the images so each person who like an image could buy an original piece - hand made, sign and date by me in a very attractive prices.

All images was create with pinhole cameras and printed on RC colour photo paper, developed by hand, sign and dates with no. of print (max.13 copies per image)

Price: 120 € - 150 € per image , not include posting .

ANDALUCIA now

Ten years ago I photographed the Andalusia region of Spain with pinhole cameras for the “Centre Andaluz de la fotografia" in Almeria. From that project was created a film, “Camino in Verso,” and a traveling exhibition.

I am now publishing those works on my website, together with a catalogue of the photos. Images are available for sale - each one handmade, signed, and dated - at very attractive prices.

In Analogical photography we have two kinds of paper - a “Baryte” paper (Carton) where the process of developing and washing is longer and more expensive, and a plastic photo paper process which is much shorter and less expensive. The different quality between those papers is almost impossible to see by eye. However, in carton paper there are more nuances in the grey and colour tones, and carton paper also keeps its image quality for hundreds of years. That is why I have created two sets of images and lists: “Plastic paper images” and “Baryte paper images.” Details for each image are written on the back of the original piece.

Prices range from 15€ -20€ for one image print on plastic paper and from 25€ - 30€ for one image on Baryte paper. (The range depends on print quality.) Shipping costs are not included. Payment can be made through PayPal.

España in Sepia

In the same time, I’m publishing all of my other works which I did in Spain during the years together with a list. All my black & white works are passing an process of “Sepia colour toning” (it’s come after the developing process). Some images have more dominant brown colour and some are more yellowish colour or very little brown - hardly to see.

I could re - print an image with more Sepia colour or just Black & white image, if the client wish so!

The series including a group of colour images which done in Almeria in the ‘90th. In this colour series there are different prices of course, An original colour image cost 150€ sign and date by me. there is a possibility to get an digital print instead for just 35€.

The Black & white images are for the same prices as for “Andalucia" works.

SWITZERLAND in the 1990s

Several trips to Switzerland during the 90s led to this series. I didn’t have a specific subject, but I photographed landscapes and cities across the country using the pin hole (Camera Obscura) technique.

I used coloured and black and white photo paper, installing the paper inside the camera. Because I don’t use normal negative film the images have unusual colours but there is no manipulation of the tints during the developing process. The black and white images received a sepia (brown) toning after developing to give the images a special time dimension.

All works are handmade, signed, and dated on the back - and are in a limited of edition of 13 max.

Price of the photographs

Colour image: 125€ / 125 CHF (digital colour prints are 45€ / 45 CHF)

Black and white image: 25€ / 25 CHF

 

 

France (through the pin hole)

PARIS

Paris images is a result of exploring the city during those years living there but also before living there. As a second home in Europe after Amsterdam, I was attached not only for the monuments and the big architecture projects which done in the city during the ’80 - ’90, but also to have Paris as more intimate place like home. The result here is out of different projects done through the ‘90th.

Prices:
Black & white image with Sepia toning: 25€ - 35€. (depends the image quality)
Colour image 125€ - 150€ (depends the image quality)

PROVINCE

Obviously going out of the “stress life” in Paris to the country side, France for me, was like another world. A perfect world were nature and human are merge together…. So the images are about nature, small villages, castles and his surrounding with human touch. This is a results of my different projects in France during the ’80th - ‘90th

Prices:
Black & white image with Sepia toning: 25€ - 35€. (depends the image quality)
