interesting reading, films, exhibits, and links

 Safelight Studio friends share items of interest with us and other readings or topics of note we post here:

On Netflix: Elsa Dorfman: She is a wonderful Polaroid photographer living in New England, and a film has been made about her, her friends, loved ones, and people she photographed, and her relationship with Polaroid. A heartwarming, illuminating film that speaks of the challenges women face as artists, the personal mission she has, and the heartwarming manner and enthusiasm with which she recreates the stories, characters, and events she has lived.

“Cell phone snaps made into silver prints… this is further support that darkroom printing will live in synergy with digital. No doubt. Here is a link to the Enfojer site: https://fojo.me/.
You’ve got to see this. They are making a mini enlarger that uses your phone screen to print from. It’s actually a beautiful looking tool to my eyes. You get the mini enlarger (use your phone for light source), tongs, trays, and a safelight.”
