AS220Darkroom

AS220's Paul Krot Community Darkrooms are the only black and white photography facilities in Rhode Island that provide affordable public access to photographers at every level. The project began in August 1994 when a group of recent graduates found themselves without access to darkroom facilities and set out to fill the gap.
