Nitesh, Thanks so much for turning me on to Anton Corbijn! I had never heard of him before, but I LOVE his work now!I really miss doing traditional black and white photography, but cant find the time to get in the darkroom.. I loved the way his photographs told such vivid stories while sticking to a simple contrasty monotone image. great!

Are you planning on coming to the US anytime soon?
I'm considering a semester in India in the spring...

There is always something very intimate about this whole process of developing a film whether using films in cinema or photography. Its like reading a book and reading online. Perhaps, i still prefer film(not much as a photographer, because I ain't one)but as a filmmaker...someday.
