A new community darkroom - Blue Zebra Photo Lab - has opened in the Alston-Brighton nieghborhood in Boston, MA.

I'm happy to hear the owners are in the their early-mid 20s, as "new blood" in analog photography is very important.

I haven't been there yet (I have a darkroom in my kitchen) and they still have some holes in their hours of operation but there seems to be a general consensus that they are doing a good job and working through the teething issues as they come up.

I do intend to check it out once my schedule opens up a bit.

Anyhow, if you are at all interested in learning more they have a site (complete with blog) at:


We haven't had much to shout about since the Boston Photo Co-op closed it's doors...so I hope they make a go of it.
