Happy Holidays, 2014

When I was first starting in photography, I worked in black in white in a makeshift darkroom set up in one of the only two bathrooms in my parents’ house in California.  Even in photography school in the 1990’s, I spent endless hours in a wet darkroom working with both color and black & white […]
