Orange and tomato juice! Beetroots! Chinotto! Coffee and cocoa! Absinth!
Yes, we used all these yummy drinks and mixed them with washing soda and vitamin c to obtain powerful black&white film developers.
I was invited to the Bildrausch Film Festival in Basel/Switzerland to give a 2 days eco developing workshop. It was one of the hottest weeks of summer – 36° at day and not much below at night … so I decided to place the workshop outside, in the shady patio of the film fest meeting spot. We installed our table and chairs, our water buckets and clothes line there and developed joyfully splashing!
And the results? All films (7) came out fine! No desaster. Only beautiful, contrasty black&white films. Yeehaaa!!
