c
lick or scroll down for the English version

Das war unsere erste Photo+Adventure in Wien.
Dabei war uns nicht langweilig, denn es gab einiges zu tun. Wir haben einige Porträts auf Kollodium Nassplatte erstellt und viele viele Fragen beantwortet. Schön, dass der 170 Jahre alte Prozess so viel Neugierde hervorgebracht hat. Außerdem haben wir viel gelernt und beim nächsten Messeauftritt wird es mehr Action geben. Danke an alle Besucher für das Interesse an meiner Arbeit. Es hat riesig Spaß gemacht mit euch!

Ein zusätzliches großes Danke an Alex, Thom und das ganze Team der Photo+Adventure. Eure Hilfe war spitze!!! Ein Video über das Event folgt in ca. 3 Wochen.

This was our first appearance at the Photo+Adventure in Vienna.
We were pretty busy all the time. I shot a lot of wet plate portraits and together we answered many questions. Good to see that the 170 year old wet plate collodion process  drew that much interest. Beside that we learned a lot, next time we will show much more action. Thanks to all visitors for the interest in my work. I enjoyed it a lot with you guys!

A big thanks to Alex, Thom and the whole team of the Photo+Adventure. Your help was awesome!
A video about the whole fair will follow in about 3 weeks.
