Love your last one Zeno! That presence in the left bottom corner makes it a strong photo.

Thank you, Robert. Shot through the windshield of a driving car and luckily the reflections and the clouds worked well!

I never got to tell you how much I love your book. It is really inspiring. I love the images, the tones and the general mood. Great work Zeno.

Holy cow, you're still going after all this time. What a great project. What kinds of things have you learned/experienced along the way?

Guy, thanks a lot for your feedback!
Archiver, I will have to think about your question before I can put it in words.
Maybe this interview will give you a first answer.

Rollei 471, Tessar


The mountain in the background is the Ksseine, the most prominent mountain in my area. I have nearly 1000 photos of it (beginning in August 1999, when I moved here) which makes it a second addiction beside my Rollei 35.

Guy, I have no problem to read your repetitions! I am working on a new book with a working title "500 pictures from 500 rolls", which is some work. Stay tuned!

Peter, Im sure BC has mountains of eye candy, but I decided to work with the stuff I have at hand;-)

Seriously spoken Im a big fan of ukiyo-e landscape series and wanted to emulate this concept. Its work in progress.

The 500 pics from 500 rolls should be worth waiting for.
What film are you using Petronius, and are you sticking with the same one as far as possible?

Thank you for your kind words, the book is already in the preproduction. I dont know when I will meet roll 500, but given my actual output I will publish the book in early or mid 2020.

I started the project with Polypan F, and used it as long as I could get it. I have a rest of 15 rolls. Beside that I used Maco traffic surveillance film, Agfa APX 100 and 400 and all kinds of expired film.
The development is always done in Rodinal (Adonal, R09) with the one hour stand method. Recently I started to overexpose and reduce the developing time to 45 minutes. I find these negatives more pleasant in terms of contrast.
