Since the 1980s I devoted my life and work to the medium of Photography. From the early 1990s however, i started to work with 8x10" Polaroid film, until dec 2012 . I always try to mark my pictures with an immense refinement and almost surreal sensibility.
Through this particular Polaroid technology, these images confirm their relation to a past reality.
Next to beauty , my photography is also about portraits. I even consider my nudes to be portraits .
Beauty is something that attracts me completely - all the time - and pushes me far in a search of something.
The book “Polarized” was a selection of my Polaroid work, which had to be abandoned, after production of the film was terminated in December 21012.
This chapter is a summary of these shots, which we realized on large-format Polaroid film.

Archival Pigment Print into diasec , framed in Massive Wengé Frame + 600 Euro - 190x150cm
Popular in the late 19th Century, today the platinum print is often labeled as an “alternative process” for
its age as well as the rarity of its use. The printing involves a mixed liquid sensitizer made of a salt and
metal (in this case the metal being the expensive platinum) coated by hand on paper, then exposed with
a negative to UV light. These prints are known for their rich & wide tonal value, as well as the unique
nature of each individual print; no two prints can be exactly the same due to the method’s very manual
nature. Because of the chemical constitution of this printing process, platinum prints are the most archival
of any print .
