Reading about Marcey Jacobson,who died recently, I learned she was a self taught photographer with a borrowed rolleiflex camera, photographing in San Cristobel, the Mayan- speaking Villages and their inhabitants. In 2001, when she was 90,” her work at last was widely recognized”. (There is hope in this message!) She said in an interview"I love being locked up all alone in a darkroom, where nobody can get at me…You take a negative, you put it in the enlarger, you expose a piece of lined paper, you put it in the developer. It’s absolutlely blank. But then it develops, and you watch it, the image floats up to you. And then you re- experience what you experienced when you took the photograph”.
