William J. Gibson at St. Michael’s College at U of Toronto student darkroom 1977, a photo by gnawledge wurker on Flickr.
Semi-sweet bird of youth mid 1970s. This darkroom was in the basement of an old, large converted family residence, used as a men’s residence. It is where Peter Mohan kindly taught me how to develop film and develop enlargements. This was where i experienced the Theory of Relativity for the first time. When you are playing in a darkroom, can’t call it work, you believe you have been there for a couple of hours but when you check your watch it turns out that two was really six hours. Totally absorbing, relaxed concentration.
