I met Rowen Smith while she was studying at the Australian Center for Photography. I really like her subject material and methods when working with black and white film. Her photography has been commended by the Australian Center for Photography and she is now processing and printing her film herself. I am very proud of her because we need more people doing this! A great advantage for her is now having complete control of her work from start to finish. Sadly for me though it means seeing less of her work. But I think she is awesome and think more people should follow in her footsteps by learning how to process and print.
