Collections

This is an ongoing series of the various collections in my life.

Today’s collection features some of my B&W photography from the last wet lab class they ever offered at Kent State in 2005. I am so grateful I got to learn how to develop and print my own photos before they tore down the lab.

I have nearly all the equipment I need to start developing again in my basement. Most of my excitement comes from the weird techniques I can begin to play around with after I get comfortable with the processes again. If you have any interesting or useful resources that relate to the darkroom, I would love to see them!

Collections.

I consider myself a collector of collections. I heard this phrase somewhere awhile ago and it really struck a chord with me. So this will be an ongoing series of the various collections in my life.

Today’s collection is from an exhibit at an open-air museum in the Netherlands that we went to a few summers ago. The exhibit featured massive collections from Dutch citizens and it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Not only were the collections themselves¬†fascinating, the way they were displayed was just as interesting.

These little gnomes were right outside the building that contained the exhibit. There were probably 100 of them.

This was a teenager’s collection of sunglasses.

Magazines of all sorts.

An entire room of crucifixes.

This was my favorite. Banks! So many banks your eyes had no idea where to start!

And the final collection featured cleverly displayed (unused) airline sick bags.
