Dror Maayan

A professional artist-photographer from Israel.


For over two decades, I was working as a professional photographer using most advanced digital cameras.


Several years ago, I discovered the alternative photography, moved back to the 19th century photographic techniques and was totally captivated by the wet collodion process, glass negatives and tintype positives.


I work with a variety of 19th-century techniques (wet collodion, albumen on glass/metal, dry gelatin, cyanotype, albumen on paper, salt prints) using original equipment including antique and vintage cameras. As an artist I always add a personal touch to the photographic work, converting an old technique into contemporary artistic work
