division – a portrait made with non – visible light

I have the feeling people are more and more divided these days, thats the reason I created these portraits.



With these portraits I show the division in visual form. On the left side the blindfold is blocking the sight – people can not see clearly, the faded tattoos are standing for a faded reality and the fist shows anger and caginess.
Where on the right side you see eyes that see through the blindfold, high contrast tattoos and an open hand that is ready to help and hug.
This images is also part of our new Album in the United Art Gallery:
https://unitedart.gallery/albums/justice-for-all-inspired-by-black-lives-matter/ You can join us with your own art about this topic. Just click the “be a part of it” and choose the topic you want to submit to.



I shot the first portrait with the wet collodion process (Sensible to UV light only) and with a digital infrared camera. The second portrait was shot with a Rollei Ortho 25 Film (Sensible to UV light only) and a Rollei Infrared 400 film. In UV light everything that is blue will get bright and red dark. Because tattoos often contain blue color they get brighter and the red blindfold gets black. In IR light it is the opposite, thats why you can see through the blindfold and get contrasty tattoos.

Thanks again to Alex and Bernhard for helping me, as you can see in the video, there were a lot of tasks to do in a short amount of time to bring this portrait to live

Wenn wir alle gemeinsam zu Hause bleiben, können wir die weitere Ansteckungen verhindern und die Kurve abflachen.


Ohne Assitenten kommt wieder meine Insta 360 Kamera zum Einsatz. Mit meiner iPhonemodifikation hatte ich Liveview auf meiner Polaroid Miniportraitkamera – mehr zu dieser Modifikation findet ihr in der Gallery.

Without an assistant I had to use my Insta360 again to shoot this video. Additionally I did use my iPhone as a live view on the polaroid mini portrait camera, so I could frame myself. Check the images in the gallery to see how I did that.

Ein Thema das uns alle Betrifft – Covid-19 verändert unser Leben.
Paßt auf euch auf!
Ich habe das Coronavirus Thema auf Nassplatte gebracht, weil ich auf das Thema aufmerksam machen wollte und weil der Virus ähnlich viel Aufmerksamkeit benötigt wie die Nassplattenfotografie. Den dort gilt auch: Kein direkter Kontakt und kein Einatmen der Chemikalien.

A topic that we all have to deal with – Covid-19 is changing our lives.
Be safe everybody and take good care of yourself!
I brought the coronavirus topic onto my WetPlate art because I want to create awareness about this virus and because it has it similarites with the wet collodion process. With this process you want to avoid contact and inhaling of the chemicals.
