What is a Darkroom?

Created and used since the inception of photography in the early 19th century, a darkroom is a room that can be made completely dark to allow the processing of light sensitive photographic materials, including photographic film and photographic paper. From the initial development to the creation of prints, the darkroom process allows complete control over the medium.
