I photograph exclusively on film. As an aficionado of old, analog photo technique, I have, amongst others, some ROLLEIFLEX medium format cameras. Amazing, the performance of these old, twin lens models which can only be operated manually. Many of the pictures shown here were taken with a ROLLEIFLEX AUTOMAT from 1954 or another really old but fully functional ROLLEIFLEX model from 1932. The manual operation takes practice, and even looking through the dark viewfinder complicates work with this type of camera. For 35mm film I use a LEICA R5 model. The camera is small, light-weight, handy and easy to use. Other camera models are in use as well for example the 6x7 medium format rangefinder camera MAMIYA 7 II. For me the best medium format camera that I can think of. Sure it is hard to afford but quality has its price, alone the unthinkable super quiet shutter release it is worth. It is much quieter than even the Leica M cameras.

POLAROIDS
A great passion is instant cameras and polaroids. They are unique in their simplicity in operation, their ability to inspire our play instinct and eagerness to experiment and to make us creative in a very simple way. And there are endless creative possibilities to manipulate the pictures during the developing process. Regrettably, the production of these films stopped which, in turn, started a great demand on the last stocks available. Films with expired use-by date are also immensely popular. Precisely these films often have their own special charm which cannot be gained otherwise. For some oft the Poloroids illustrated here I used an original POLAROID film the use-by date of which has expired by no less than six years. The effect resulting thereof emphasizes the retro touch of the images. Other images were shot by using the new IMPOSSIBLE film and FUJI INSTAX film.
