I took these pictures in 1995, during my first, mind blowing, visit to New York City and New Orleans. Then I spent countless hours in the darkroom at the University of Marie Curie-Sklodowska, playing with grain, tonal ranges, experimenting with over-magnification, fighting with old and heavy Soviet made enlargers.

Pure fun. Or no – a kind of meditation rather. And I miss this analogue, deeply physical routine.

I need a darkroom. Anybody?
