fuchu art museum

in the ladies' room @ the fuchu art museum
I went to the museun to watch open work by Ryudai Takano, a photographer.
A temporary darkrrom is being built and people have free access there while he is printing during the event.
(The staff advises people trying to enter the darkroom to open the dark curtain softly by the entrance.)
I enjoyed watching how he printed in the darkroom and how much time he took to finish one photograph more than three hours straight...!
There was just no opportunity to observe others printing recently, so it was fun.
