Thank you very much Søren Schauser from Berlingske Tidende and Johan Varning Bendtsen from Politiken for your interest for our work with Wet Plate Collodion Photography.

See you to the Week of Wet Collodion Photography in The Photoscope
The Photoscope took off in such a fantastic speed. The last three months has fare gone beyond my expectations.
Thank you all for the best Grand Opening with so many wonderful and interested visitors, I was overwhelmed by the amount of interest for the old historical photo techniques and for workshops in the so called alternative photographic techniques.
The last three months has been very busy with workshops in Cyanotype, Emulsion transfer from Polariods, and Making of Glass Plate Negatives, as well as work in the darkroom learning the analogue way from film to papir. A lot of very creative people have been working during the workshops and what a thrill it has been to meet them all and to see how they experimented and stretched the use of the different techniques. The photographic works became personal and unique from the very beginning.
Thank you fore all your comments and suggests to future workshops and activities in the Photoscope. I am working hard to meet your exciting ideas. Many more workshops will be coming up in the next months and also in other historical photographic techniques.
And dear Daniel Samanns, thank you for letting me show your fantastic Ambrotypes in the gallery. The portraits are so strong and intense and truly show what the wet plate collodion technique can add to the work of a great art photographer. The portraits become timeless icons in a very physical way, that touches you and makes you wonder.
Daniel Samanns will be working in the Photoscope this spring, as we are planing a Week of Wet Collodion. In this week there will be workshops in the making of wet plate collodion photographs, talks and event. We are very excited and can't wait to annonce it all during the next weeks.
All for now and lots of hugs from,
