" Developer Trays is master photography printer John Cyr's tribute to the craft and art he has spent his career perfecting.

As sure as the age of silver has come to an end, there remain few but extraordinary and dedicated darkroom practitioners such as Cyr who continue to work with chemistry and processes more or less unchanged since the early days of the medium. With an unrivaled passion for the darkroom and all its accouterments Cyr set out to document the actual developer trays of many of the world's most renowned photographers. Cyr celebrates in stunning large-format color photographs the intimate materiality of the developer tray itself and the ephemeral presence of the artist within it.

This revelatory work showcases the ubiquitous developer tray as an essential vehicle of analog photography that defies modern digital photographic advances : its material nature and functionality will not become obsolete. "
