Michael James Photography

Occasionally updated blog about my cameras, photography, processes, coffee, and mixtures of the above

So one of my favorite parts of working in a photo lab is finding these “damaged” prints. We have trash cans along the processing area, and prints get thrown away in various stages of processing. This leads to all sorts of interesting solarization and chemical contamination, often having interesting effects and occasionally producing something amazing. I know not who made this print, nor at what stage it was thrown in the trash can, but it is awesome.
