After months of preparations, we are proud the announce the opening of the Mori community darkroom. We built our darkroom with two things in mind: comfort and ease of use.
The darkroom can accommodate up to 6 printers at the time. Our fully light-tight enlarger rooms provide complete immersion and uninterrupted printing even when the darkroom is at maximum capacity.
Our wet lab is fully equipped with a custom-built sink making developing prints (up to 50x60) in trays super easy.
For faster and easier B&W print developing, we also have an Ilford Ilfolab 2150RC capable of developing prints up to 50cm wide in 3 minutes wet to dry.
More than anything else, the Mori Darkroom is a place where everyone is welcome to come and create. Just bring your negatives and start printing your own pictures the way they were meant to be!
We believe the process of making a photograph doesn’t end when you press the shutter. Printing in the darkroom allows you to take full ownership of your pictures. While getting high resolution scans straight to your email is amazing, there's something magical about holding a print that you made from start to finish.
When printing in the darkroom you get all the control.
Ever since the 90s, all prints made in labs are made from scans. This means that all the pictures you print come from negatives that have first been digitised.
You sell prints? If you need quantity printing in the darkroom can be a lot cheaper than doing to a lab for inkjet shots. Just dial in your settings and start printing. You’ll make amazing real silver prints that are unique. Good for you, good for your customers.
When using the Mori Darkroom, all chemistry and equipment is included. All you have to do is prepare your negatives, bring some paper and book a slot.
Book your session right here.
When booking, you can choose which enlarger you'd like to use and for how long.
Our Darkroom is currently fully equipped for black and white printing.
You can print negatives from 35mm all the way to 4x5, depending on the enlarger.
If it is your first time booking a spot in our darkroom please contact us first at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is required you either prove your darkroom experience or have taken a course with us before being able to use our darkroom.
If you can use a darkroom but have not been in one for a prolonged time, we can also offer an express refresher course at the beginning of your session at a small additional cost.
Colour printing is coming soon.
We want our darkroom to be open to all but also accessible for students and regular darkroom printers.
Because of this we have decided to create two price plans.
No strings attached:
If you just want to print every now and then, this is the prefect option for you. All you have to do is book a spot and you’re ready to go.
If you are planning to print regularly we highly advice you to take the darkroom membership. You can join us here for only 49 euros/month.
Find all the info about the membership here.
We want to make the art of darkroom printing accessible to all. Because of this we hold regular courses for you to be able to learn how to use a darkroom and be completely independent in creating your own beautiful prints.
