Since this site is dedicated to the legacy of Jacques and Charles Biederer I don’t feel the need to put myself in the spotlights. At the same time I don’t want to keep up a mysterious appearance, so here is a little more about me.
I am a true Valentine baby, born in 1972. My love for photography was triggered when I watched my father being busy in his darkroom. He was an amateur photographer who liked to do portraits and glamour photography. He invited me, I think when I was around 15, to view the negative prints and make a selection to show the models. It was there where I learned to observe photos, a skill I have been using for years in curating various erotic art projects which I run (see the list at the bottom of this page).
It was around 2000 that I received a special gift, a domain name. At that time I had no clue what to do with it, since I love to write (poetry and personal thoughts) I used the domain to create a personal website about my bdsm desires. Something at that point I wanted to learn and understand, and most of all find balance in. This domain is still active, the writings however are in Dutch.
Soon the site evolved, I included a gallery with bdsm art and photos and that was where my love for bdsm art was triggered. The various art projects I curate are all dedicated to bdsm art and photography, when searching for vintage fetish photos I learned about the Biederer Brothers. Slowly the idea grew to create an online tribute to these photographers. Not a book that you need to buy but a free collection to browse. I think the works from these photographers deserve a well visited platform, by making their photos available for everyone to see and download I want to honor them. In case you like to use any of their photos please feel free to do so, their work is in the public domain. It would be great if you could refer to this website as a source, I am planning on keeping this site online till I am no longer alive (and I hope at that point my children will honor me by keeping this site online).
I hope you enjoy my efforts here, in case you like to show your support by donating that would be very welcome. I pay for hosting for my projects myself, I consider it a hobby 😉 but every donation helps to keep this project online.
