Why, you ask, photography? Moreover, why black and white darkroom photography in the digital age? I honor all mediums and their makers, but, for me, traditional film photography is both medium and metaphor. Each step leaves a seen and an unseen imprint on the final image. The negative becomes positive. The silver – the precious – is revealed. From scene to print, with camera and enlarger as interlocutors, transformation occurs. Each photo, a token of our own ability to evolve.
