    last weekend there was a village art fair where everybody shows his art skills at home. There was a bike route along the addresses.
    I made my garage into a gallery "Le Garage" showing analog photography baryta prints and cyanotypes.
    During the days i explained people what it was and they could see the result. Also explaining what cyanotype is etc...

    Lots of people where astonished that there where still darkroom workers who did this and what the result was. 1 girl of 13 was visiting because she was very interested in the medium. It's very nice to spread the analog word into the world...

    That looks really great! I love that casual feeling!

    It's a wonderful job you did, and for the right cause ;-)

    What a great idea! And a nice, positive way to promote analog work as well...

    Excellent idea.... but how do you get an empty garage? Everyone I know with a garage has it full with stuff right up to the door (not many people keep cars in garages).

    Sweet set-up, I'd like to come over and lounge in your drive/studio/garage and check out your art.

    Very, very cool. This is the type of stuff that will keep film around for many years.
