I know I’ve been a bit quiet lately so until I manage to find time to hit the op shops again I thought I’d share the work of another photographer who inspires me. This time it is Lillian Bassman. Her fashion work in black and white is amazing to start with but then the darkroom manipulations she adds are just incredible at creating an entirely different mood. If you want an example of how to do it without photoshop (and do a better job!) then you can’t turn to anybody else. Her photography definitely reignites the fire within me to get back into the darkroom.
