Last night I printed for 5 hours in the darkroom and I cannot imagine anything else that I’d rather do. At night when I arrive home I lay my prints to dry on the wood floor in my bedroom. Fiber prints cannot go in the dryer and need to dry on a hard flat surface. The best thing about it is waking up in the morning to my last night's prints; what a great start!
I’ve been working for a few months now on a “rundown with a classic camera” series.
I think this one print in one of my favorites so far. It is a picture taken in South Central L.A. (recently renamed South L.A.) with a flipped-lens Brownie box camera on Arista 400 film. It is 10"X10” print on 11”X14” Arista fiber matte paper which I chose for this assignment as it has a nice warm tone appeal to it.
