This website is about the use of abandoned camera’s or places to give a new boost to analogue photography in the digital world.

Personally I started using an analogue camera when I was 8 years old. The ‘Clack’ if I remember well. Later on I went to the Rietveld academy to become a photographer and designer. So there I was, a professional photographer. I carried on using my camera’s until 2004 and then became a digital monster.

I sold my Hasselblad, Contax and other stuff. But then, in 2014, I changed my mind and bought old analogue camera’s again. In 2015 I sold my professional digital camera’s to try to make a living in analogue photography again.

It might be a mission impossible but we only know after some time. So there we are, what is next? It will (hopefully) serve your (analogue) needs worldwide to promote the (analogue) photography in a professional way. Shoots by analogue camera’s, shots of abandoned places or items as long it is abandoned in any way is fine but the main goal is analogue black and white photography. Feel free to explore the galleries (you will find them in the menu).

Please contact me for questions or (wise) remarks.

Thank you.

Roelof van der Schaaf

I am a designer and photographer working worldwide but most of the time I am having my breakfast in Arnhem, Netherlands. My free work is about analogue photography using old camera’s with old and new analogue technology. All negatives are scanned professionally to suit the digital world and to promote the beautiful quality of this photography. Please see the menu for more details. I studied Photograpic Design at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and The University of Creative Arts (formally known as Medway College of Design) in Rochester (UK).
