About these pages
These pages are the web archive of Rontalis a photographer living near Basel, Switzerland.
My photographs are handmade without any digital help. I keep my process simple to try and gain full control on the final print. Each print is unique, like a haiku, bundling sub/un/conscious strengths to reach poetry.
These prints are palladiotypes: an alternative process using platinum and palladium salts coated on a top quality japanese paper. I print one piece after another in a maximal edition of three to five pieces. Price depends on the number of the print, just feel free to ask.
