Darkroom Mappings

photographer's timer, unique chromogenic print
The Darkroom Mappings series captured the light that exists in the photographer's dark room. Yes, the very place where walls are painted black and no windows are allowed is the place that I captured and recorded these image as photograms. Glow-in-the-dark arrows guide your movements and stars give you a place to rest your eyes while your image develops. I really like the idea of the darkroom exposing itself and "digesting" itself to create the final images. Once your eyes adjust, there's so much to see. An interview with me, by Jenny Rosenberg, about this body of work is included. It was created for SF Cameraworks' A Journal of Photographic Arts publication that accompanied Agitate, an exhibition where the Darkroom Mappings series was exhibited.
