Trieste

Analogue at Riflemaker, a requiem for the darkroom.  Cluttered spaces, tidy spaces; stacks of red white and yellow boxes; coffee cups, CDs, snaps pinned to walls.  The memories of the acrid redolence of dev-stop-fix and the magical emergence of images. Names form a photographic litany.

Agfa, Durst, Leitz; / Cathomag, Beseler, De Vere; / Portriga–Rapid, Record-Rapid; / Ilfochrome, Kodabrome, Kentona.

A handwritten sign says ‘ROY TURN OFF LIGHTS’.  No safelights now.

Photo: Trieste, March 2003.  A hybrid: taken with Leica M6 on Kodak T400 CN; negative scanned at 4800 dpi on Epson Perfection 4870; adjustments in Lightroom.
