What’s this about?
I seriously started taking pictures when I was about 20 years of age and decided to do a photography course on documentary-photography. I loved it. Getting out there and taking pictures, going home, developing the film and printing in my self-built darkroom, seeing the magic happen right in front of me. Great stuff. I had a passion for black and white. From developing film with my own fine tuned formulas of developer solution, really getting to know the film and its reaction to the chemicals, to printing in the darkroom, all night long, selecting the right frames from the contact sheets. Printing was my thing, the crown on the pleasure of photography. And now in the digital age it still is.
The digital darkroom brings enormous control over developing, editing and converting images, almost unimaginable in the analog age. Cost effective and also with a lot of beauty. Maybe not the same as film and paper but different in a good and expanded way.
