Darkroom

before Photoshop 
all my manipulations 
were done by hand
in the darkroom
under a dim red light
handprinted b/w silver gelatin photo on fiber paper
today when I was 
making handmade paper
and manipulating the textures
with hand carved molds
I was reminded of the 
experiments I performed
 in the darkroom
with C-41 & E-6 films
and fiber papers

some of the handmade papers
feel like skin and are
as soft and durable
as suede

I am looking forward to 
posting these experiments  
in the upcoming weeks
