    Chambre Hardman, Liverpool photographer

    Here is a very interesting article about a photographer from Liverpool UK and his perfectly preserved home, studio and darkroom as well as some of photographs taken during his spare time.

    What's up with his Rolleiflex?

    There was a very good hour long documentary on British T.V. about Chambre Hardman a couple of years ago you may be able to see on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/results?searc....0...0.0...1ac

    Love his darkroom. Functionally, not so different from all of ours. The clutter level looks just about right. A D5 enlarger in mine instead of a D2.* An LPL easel. Stacked boxes of paper. A paper trimmer. The safelights these days may now be LEDs instead of bulbs, but the light's still red...

    Needs to do something about those light leaks around the window, though.

    * Wonder if he has any spare carriers I could use??

    He employed several hand-colourists who were "home-workers" living in various places around Liverpool and very good they were too. A B&W print would be sent out via the very good tramcar public transport system and returned suitably coloured to his studio the same way in a very short time.

    It is a fascinating place where visitors are allowed to handle various stuff while getting a conducted tour. It really takes you back to another era of photography and life that existed pre-World War II although he continued to work after the war.

    Well worth a visit and free if you are a member of the National Trust organisation.
