In this digital age one artist is still hand processing analogue camera films plates and prints

 
 

'Fear is a darkroom where dreams set sail in a caustic sea.'
quote by Alexander James Hamilton, 1995.

from the series 'Offshore Recordings'

I have always been fascinated with analogue film and paper processing, still maintaining the systems to process, scan, darkroom and digital print the plates from within the studio walls has been highly rewarding from a creative perspective. I still have a film fridge full of 5*4 and 8*10 inch film and try to complete at least 2 projects a year with those films that remain. I am not sure how many other artists are left still working with the old photographic processes at their core. With limited film supplies out there, I am certain very few.

here is the Jobo film processor..
