This is Herbie Hancock, Maiden Voyage. I have really been enjoying listening to music on vinyl, so much so that it’s been a great distraction from everything. It’s been an opportunity to discover music that’s new to me. I’ve been listening to some mint condition albums from the 80s that make me feel like I’ve travelled back in time.
To me, playing music in vinyl gives me the same connection to music as film does for photography — it’s a hands-on, interactive experience. It’s a chance to be particular about procedure, to make tweaks in the system, and be more involved with something I really love.
This photo also represents the first darkroom work I’ve done in a while. I’ve been so caught up in everything else that I haven’t had time for my most precious hobby.
