He is highly interested in innovating photographic processes and the conservation and distribution of photographic knowledge. All is nothing if nobody knows anything. Currently, Ludwig Hagelstein writes about chemical photography for various online and print publications, among others Emulsive, Petapixel, Medium Format Magazine and Photoklassik International and SilvergrainClassics.
