“I always have been fascinated by photography. But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me. So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography. Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process. It may sound strange, but the amount of work it takes to make just a single picture returned the joy of photography to me.”

The photographs are collected in a photo book and to learn more about the artist and his workflow, watch this video.
