Art in the dark

Posted by | Start the discussion

In one of the few publicly accessible photography darkrooms in the metro area, students in Community Ed’s Darkroom Photography classes learn the arts and magic of transforming black and white film into prints. Camaraderie develops as film develops, and many students have taken these classes for years. Instructor Mike Riches designed the darkroom himself, drawing on his decades of experience as a photographer.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
