Darkroom Sessions Vol. 01

A few quick snaps of prints I’ve made at The School of Light recently.

Thanks to Miks Ozolins for being kind enough to pose for me, to Andrew Hall for the guidance in the darkroom, and to Toni Marie Jeffries for making it possible!

Table No. 01

 

These are a few shots from the build of our custom dining table that Toni and I decided to make after being dissatisfied with several aspects of the offerings we found locally.

The top is a heavy-duty worktop similar to a butcher block, and the legs are flat iron segments welded by hand in a trapezoidal shape. Toni sourced the legs, I sourced the top. We assembled them and I stripped the factory-applied finish with a random-orbit sander. The edges and corners were sanded to a pleasingly smooth finish and I stained it to a warm brown. We chose a set of 4 woven wire chairs to compliment it – one is barely visible in the second shot.

We hope to have this for many years, and to have many family dinners around it.
