The Darkroom Sessions: Chris O’Connell

In this episode of ‘The Darkroom Sessions’ John joins Chris O’Connell (virtually) in his darkroom for a chat about his fascinating and vegetable based darkroom processes.  Yes, that’s right, beetroot and onions.  We take a journey through many subjects from Eastenders to large format self portraits and everything in between.

Do check out his website and follow on IG:
