Alex Timmermans: Storyteller

Alex Timmermans: Storyteller


Dutch photographer Alex Timmermans is a storyteller. Known for his use of the collodion wet plate photography process, Timmermans creates enchanting images and like his fairy tale images, the process he employs is the antithesis to predictability; little twists of fate coming together for the final scene. Timmermans is a self-taught photographer who has practiced photography his entire life. However, when the change from analog to digital came about he found with it came predictability and less excitement. For Timmermans, working with the wet plate process made photography inspiring again. In a long tradition of photographers drawn to its unique aesthetic, such as Sally Mann, Joni Sterbach and the Ostermans, Timmermans uses this process to achieve unforgettable images that have a dreamy quality and an aura of mystery.
