About the artist
Erik Hijweege is an artist who works in many realms - portraits, still lifes, landscapes, reportage, and more - but his heart lies in producing this work using the 19th century wet plate collodion process for his personal work. In October 2014 he published his first book of collodion positives Een eigen gezicht, followed by Endangered in November 2014. This method produces singular, striking images, and one can see a consistent, beautiful look across his oeuvre. Originally an advertising agency strategist, Hijweege could no longer deny his passion for photography, transitioning and focusing full-time on it since 1998.
