Project Basho

I have been printing in the darkroom at Philadelphia’s Project Basho for the last few weeks. Maybe the best advantages of using a communal darkroom are the people you meet, and the variety of things you are exposed to. There is an informal critique this Sunday (August 5th), and in addition to holding small classes and workshops, there will soon be a space for exhibitions, film screenings, and rental studio space.

Earlier this week, Tsuyoshi was showing two short videos of James Nachtwey and Edward Burtynsky giving their TED Prize acceptance speeches, which until then, I had not seen. Seeing Burtynsky’s talk reminded me that I still need to see the film, Manufactured Landscapes, by Jennifer Baichwal . Maybe I can make time for it next week . . .
