I recently started taking a darkroom class and utterly fell in love with the process. Today I drove 400kms to go pick up an Omega B-22 enlarger so that I can process both 35mm and 645 in my basement. One of my goals with the 52Weeks project is to make a print of each of the selected images and put together a book. Not a book that will be for sale, just a book that will sit on my shelf where I can look at it and say “I made that.”
As I keep moving back in time, making things more manual and more hands on, I enjoy it more and more. I don’t see myself doing a tintype any time soon. I seem to have settled on late 1960s to early 1980s technology as my happy place.
