Gerrit Jan Postema, 1959, Groningen, Netherlands. Self-taught photographer. Purephotography to me is synonymous with analog photography. Working with film, 'grain' instead of pixel. The trenchant, obscure black & white what comes to life in the wet process in the darkroom. I make portraits, portraits of people but also portraits of flowers, buildings and objects. I have oa. exhibited with theatrephotos and am also the photographer for 40 years of my own inner circle. My tools are a Nikon 35 mm film camera, Mamya 6 x 6 and Cambo 4x5 inch.
