Exhibition: The End of Professional Darkrooms .....

The impact of digital technology on print photography and music production is the subject of a new exhibition entitled ANALOG. It shows us inside the last of London’s photographic darkrooms, as well as taking a visit to a working reel-to-reel music studio.


In 2006, when Richard Nicholson began photographing London’s professional darkrooms there were some 214 still in existence; when he completed the project four years later only 5 remained. In these labs many of the iconic images of 20th-century culture were processed, from the high-contrast b/w prints of the cast of Trainspotting to lith portrait album covers for U2.


Details can the exhibition can be found here.
