From Slate, a photo essay story on the print developing trays used by famous photographers of the past. Before digital cameras every photographer worth his/her salt developed their own negatives and prints. To do this you needed a pitch black room with a small red light to see, an enlarger, chemicals and trays. I had a darkroom for many years so these pictures are very familiar, but after initially being excited by the story headline, it turned out to be pretty boring.
photographs of print trays in groups of 3. As extraordinary as Ansel Adams was as a photographer, his tray isn't all that interesting as history. Actually we probably still have mine on a shelf in the basement as well as brown glass jars of developing chemicals which should have been tossed years ago.
A better story might have shown prints Adams and the others decided against using.
