On May the 4th and 5th, coinciding with the 5th World Wet Plate Day, the European Collodion Weekend will be held this year near Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Over 40 collodion wet plate photographers from all over the world will be showing their skills, creativity and passion. They all practice the Wet Plate Collodion, a historical photographic process roughly described from June 1850 by Gustave Le Gray in France and one year later in England by Fredrick Scott Archer, with full details.
Antique wooden cameras and 150 years old lenses as well as modern 35 mm and up to 50×50 cm glass plates will be used during the venue.
World renowned collodion artists as Alexey Alexeev (Russia), Gerald Figal (USA), Fabrice Péjout and Basile Dubroeucq (France), Arjan Went and Manon Navarro (Holland), Borut Peterlin (Slovenia), Alex Timmermans (organizer of this event) and many others will be present.
