How many A3 sheets can be filled with a marker pen? When is the pen truly empty?
Summer 2006. Durst announces that it will no longer manufacture photographic enlargers. Sales have plummeted from a peak of 107,000 units in 1979 to just a few hundred units in recent years. 1979 was the year my father constructed a darkroom and introduced me to photography. I was immediately entranced by the printing process, and I cherished the long hours spent in this dark, silent, private space. Ever since the darkroom has been integral to my work as a photographer. But for how much longer? Labs are closing their doors, Polaroid has stopped making instant film. Clients are demanding the immediate feedback of digital photography.
Several of the darkrooms featured have since closed down. Others will surely follow.
Growing up in the seventies and eighties, my childhood memories basically consist of videogames, bright plastic toys and TV cartoons. Any time that was left I spent drawing and programming games for my Commodore 64. At a later age a few of my childhood dreams became a reality when I temporarily moved to Melbourne, where I worked as a videogame programmer, did oil-painting in a studio and had my work displayed in one of the local galleries. After a course in Graphic Design I made a career-switch and became a graphic designer/illustrator. Currently back in The Netherlands I work at a small design company and spend my spare time illustrating my childhood memories and designing papertoys. I specialize in one-piece papertoys that consist of a single flat piece of paper, which by intricate folding is transformed into a 3-dimensional model.

Over the past month Folke Köbberling and Martin Kaltwasser have been building a giant amphitheatre out of junk, called Amphis. With the aid of volunteers and intrigued onlookers, the German duo have almost finished and the result is worth a visit. As a study in patchwork construction, it is a magical space of chambers fabricated by borrowers, and has a glory unmatched by any corporate office block. It helps that Kaltwasser is an architect, so the building is structurally sound and user-friendly. The two have been collaborating since 1998, creating amorphous forms out of trash that retain a childlike simplicity in spite of rigorous engineering. – Jessica Lack, The Guardian 23.9.2008
