Printing in the Crawford

Central Park, lake and reflections, NYC. Holga + Kodak film. By Rory O’Toole

Saturday was the second morning spent printing in the darkroom of the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork. It is a fantastic facility, and we are very grateful to Trish and the photography department for making it available to us. The whole group was in on Saturday, so the bonding and feel good factor was high. And plenty of slagging to keep things real! We are preparing for our exhibition in Gallery Nautica in the summer, and the work rate was high.
Although some of us have darkrooms at home, nothing compares with working in a group for a few hours. The company and the chatter is fun, but the encouragement and critique as you work helps you deal with problems that may just leave you frustrated at home. All in all a good morning, and a number more to come before we exhibit.
