Darkroom Work Nearly Done

On Thursday evening I trimmed and tacked fifty five fibre prints for my upcoming show 'The Line of Lode', part of Head On Photography Festival 2015. The finishing stage is where I find months of work in the darkroom starts to look like a show, and things get exciting. Next step is to dry mount to cotton rag, and then framing. There will be about 18 photographs exhibited, I've made three copies of each.

Darkroom Prints

I've been spending a lot of time in the darkroom recently, preparing for my show in May, The Line of Lode. Here's a couple of fibre base prints on the drying rack at the end of my session a few nights ago, it's a bit fuzzy, but that's the phone camera! I'm using Ilford Classic paper which really works well for me, beautiful tones.
