“All the works in the GTG show are created entirely in the darkroom. I worked under normal B/W safelight conditions for this body of work but have previously worked in the darkroom without any light other than the light source I am using to make my mark with. However, either way I cannot see the mark I have made until I have passed the photographic paper through the developer – I print my own work. I have a small darkroom and manage to print large sheets of photographic paper, which I buy in rolls up to 114.5cm/45inch wide.
