“I have lit these often-gloomy spaces to reveal the beauty of the machinery; enlargers are masterpieces of industrial design. And I have sought to shed light on the surrounding personal workspaces (snapshots of family members, souvenirs from globetrotting photographers, guidebooks to Photoshop, out-takes from glamour shoots, lists of unpaid invoices).”

Richard Nicholson explored London to photograph the last remaining professional darkrooms, finding himself extremely nastalgic. I am lucky to work in a lab, and I know that when I no longer smell those chemicals or work in the dark, I will feel an overwhelming nostalgia, as well.
