Lately I have been building up what I am fondly calling my "super ghetto darkroom". Yes, it has a washer and dryer, but it's my artistic space and it makes me happy every time I see it. I am lucky to have some friends who have donated their chemicals to me (thanks Sheena and Kate!) as they are less interested in alternative printing processes than I am. It is particularly the historic processes I want to master and see where they lead me. For now, I'm using old imagery to create negatives to start. Soon there will be more, but here are some pictures of how my "play time" has been going over the past couple weeks.

|This was pure experimentation. It took about 20 minutes for a cyanotype to print of a negative I had lying around.|
Keep an eye out. That super ghetto darkroom is almost to the point where you'll start seeing more here!
