“Crisp, contained, conceptual, and attractively self-conscious. A charm. Couldn’t be better.”Anthony Bannon

From the mid-nineteenth century until today, silver gelatin printing has been one of the most utilized photographic processes, and until the mid-1970s, from classic reportage to fine art, a majority of photographs were produced in black-and-white darkrooms. The digital advances in photography over the past ten years have been remarkable; many photography programs no longer have traditional darkrooms. I am photographing developer trays so that the photography community will remember the specific, tangible printing tools that were an essential part of the photographic experience for a hundred years. By titling each tray with its owner’s name, I reference the historical significance of these objects in a minimal manner that invites thought and introspection about what images have passed through each individual tray.
