I work primarily in analog photography, mainly with the Mamiya RZ67 Pro II in medium format 6x7. I also have a large format Linhof Technika V / 4x5, a Graflex Speed Graphic, and a few other analog cameras.

The main reason why I'm attracted to analog photography is the special quality of analog film. Another reason is that I get much more involved with the capture I am about to take. The Mamiya is as dumb as a piece of machinery can become. It does not even have a light meter. The whole process of photographic work must take place in the head of the photographer. I like that kind of challenge and - for me - it bears a lot of creativity and a deep involvement.
