When displaying photos in the darkroom, the sense of time disappears and one can often feel strange sensations when contemplating alone in the red light. During the developing process, you can never be quite sure what the outcome might be. A frame on a film strip can be completely lost by adding chemicals in the wrong order, but sometimes a touch of inexplicable magic is added to the film and the photos come out even more thrilling than originally planned. This sense of the unknown, the excitement of experimentation and the magic of the darkroom is conveyed by the photo artists in this exhibition.
TYPA Darkroom Club started in the fall of 2021. Our club members come from different countries and backgrounds, but they are united by a passion for experimentation in the darkroom and old cameras. Various photo techniques are practiced in the Photography Club and we’ll display the most interesting experiments of the season. You can see cyanotypes, silver-gelatin photographs, photos taken with a pinhole camera and gelatin transfer printing.
