We live in a digital age, where even cellphones can capture photographic images. The modern tools of photography are available to anyone with a computer and the desire to sit in a comfortable chair, clicking mouse buttons and drinking coffee by the glow of their monitor. There are, however, a few people who prefer to use technology developed more than 150 years ago. These Luddites willingly stand on concrete floors in a dark, foul-smelling, fume-filled room, devoting hours to producing one perfect black and white print. They agree that nothing compares to the magic of watching their image appear from a blank page in the red glow of the darkroom. They're the members of Crossgrain Photographic Studio and they're having their annual exhibit and sale.

Spiral. Wet.
