Photographer J-MFOTOGRAFIE offered me the opportunity shoot in an old brick factory. And I love old factories! They just make great quirky backdrops for photos. So, it didn’t took me long to decide.
A little background information…
The factory, which consists of a compression building and a coal-powered ring kiln, was built in 1918-1919 and has been – and still is – making unique bricks according to an age-old recipe for almost 100 years. Of course, the compressing and shaping machine now run on electricity, and the wooden huts have been replaced with drying buildings. But, the ring kiln works just like it did 100 years ago; on coal. How cool is that!
Enjoy a peek into my first photo shoot of 2022.

And the building tells you how to redo it.”
