The art of printmaking in a darkroom using traditional materials and methods is not totally dead yet. It is 2011 and I was easily able to go out and purchase chemicals for printing as well as to order from the internet a large box of juicy chemicals ready for the darkroom. Making some proof prints of some new rolls of film, or new sheets, is always a fun experience. You get to see the images in the flesh for the first time. Looking at them as a small negative is one thing but seeing them as a print, even if only 5x7 is another. More work to come!
