    Good news, Fred. Very good news.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Every now and then I pay a visit to my friends in Brussels. I'll take a small trip to see you Flemish people out there... Congratulations and hope it'll grow to be a big European Traditional Photography Center...

    Thanks Bill, Marc, Clogz, Bob, Sean, Dave, Ralph, Curt, Fintan and Suzanne.

    The project will start in september.

    It was for already some years a dream.
    But dreams has to be realised.
    To avoid having regrets afterwards.

    The house will only be used for (traditional) photography purposes.
    Not for living, completely dedicated for b&w printing and alternative techniques.

    Planning is to grow in activities (show, workshop, training, printing, meeting) in the first 3 years and, when I'm sixty, then to go for it full-time.
    We'll create "an assocation without profit" (???) a sort of mini-academy or mini-gallery, in fact more a "workhouse" for black and white traditional photography.

    The center will be available, will be placed at member's disposal, from october/november of this year.

    Off course, we will try to go step by step.
    The center will have professional equipment from the start.
    With two darkrooms (4,5 by 4,26 meter and one 4,5 by 1.8m)
    to create black and white silver prints for the whole workflow just at the stage of presenting the the prints.

    Further information you will find on a website that will be ready in August of this year.

    Kind regards

    Good guess... George!
    The "ultimate" (?) highest dream!?
    But let's stay very humble...

    If "live" will allow us
    if funds can be found!

    The knowledge (with an history of sales and marketing) to unite all traditional b & w forces we have...

    Kind regards

    I thought this too but, after seeing what went down before over this conversation, thought it best to stay silent. I've been in enough trouble here lately.

    Don't put words in my mouth that I didn' t say David...
    Step by step I'd prefer.

    On the contrary,
    the equipement for the printers, users of the futur centre will be very professional...

    untill now...

    2 M805 diffusion and condensor enlarger
    1 laborator 1000
    1 UT 100
    analyser pro
    hyland splitgrade
    seal bienfang dry mount press
    rotatrim 30
    Hyland densitometer
    pre-flashing unit

    adsl connection
    epson 4990 scanner
    possibility to dry mount on aluminium
    printing large formats (1m by 1,5m)

    and so on and so on
    so, it will be a "work house" (factory) for the gelatine silver print

    with for the teacher/printer even a bedroom and bathroom

    regards
    Fred

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    In the mean time, Suzanne, I did some search.
