    Agreed, mine lives in a small bag ( A&A Oskar's One Day ) that used to be for my two body, 4 lens Leica set that I mostly sold off. Now it shares that bag with a lone M3 and 50/2, ten rolls of Tri-X and a tiny Gossen Digisix meter. The prints are to die for!

    I do not think he is.

    I am doing the exact thing you are doing except I have started this project a bit different.
    Over the last three years I have made high resolution scans of all my negatives. I did eliminate some.
    I just finished last month and now my wife is starting to do the same thing.
    Next is to pick the process for final printing of each series .. some I plan to make enlarger prints, even though I have the scan, others I want to make small platinums and carbons.
    The colour work is all slated for a mixture of gum and carbon for both my wife and my colour negs and slides.

    The moment we feel that Silver Paper is going to be either crazy expensive or hard to get we buy the big walk in freezer with a few of our friends and bring in enough for 10 years of printing.
    What is quite amazing is that you are doing this at a younger age, I am nearing 60 and wish I had done what you are doing now.
    For me it will be fun to print everyday for myself and not worry about whether the client will like the print as I will be the client.

    I plan to keep the edition numbers small on my general work and when I print I will print the edition.
    My solarizations are a bit bigger edition so editing to what I think is my very best work is the hardest part.

    Back up your storage in a couple of ways... trust me on this one.

    The worst part will indeed be to number all the prints and file all the negatives in a logical, intelligent way. And then digitizing all the prints. Huge headaches ahead. Funny enough, the biggest and most boring task will indeed be the digital part. Yuk.

    Oh no, Dude, I am totally serious. I have close to 50 years of negatives, mostly unprinted. I wish I had you determination. I agree about the digital part. It can be mind numbing.

    Now THIS should be called The Impossible Project. Kudos for your diligence and persistence.

    Not really impossible. Twenty fine 11x14 prints a week and at the end of the year you've got yourself 1000 Prints. Don't quit for a few years and soon enough you realize you're hooked and on your way to get through it all...
    Money might be a problem, though.

    Don't tell Bob where you live!


    Trust me.

    FWIW, I as well, admire you for undertaking this task.
    Kick his ass, Sea Bass!

    Yes I am very impressed well done. I am doing something slightly similar. I am only posting printed material for a least a year. If its worth showing it's worth printing.

    I've made this same decision to go with 11x14. That's a good way to see consistent style and quality.

    Though I am miles and miles behind...
    Slowly but surely
