My name is Sevilay Maria van Dorst and i am an inherently nomadic, autodidactic maker of analog photographs, prints and magic, currently based in Amsterdam. After some years at the KABK in The Hague, i decided to take my work elsewhere. I traveled through over thirty countries, documenting landscapes and people wherever she went, before specializing in wet plate collodion photography. The beauty of this technique, is that it relies equally on the chemistry between photographer and subject as on a fluency in the chemical process involved. Open-minded, free-spirited and a gipsy at heart, i am constantly searching for synergy, and i find this more often than not.
