If you take the old road that goes from Coatepec to Las Trancas, you can find the Martinez Hachiti beneficio, where I met Mr Hipólito. He is the keeper of it, he started working there when he was 7 (he is now 74, do the math) and talk about the good past times of his life. He showed me all the factory and we were talking for hours about his life and I discovered a new way of seeing things. He is the most wonderful, sensitive person I’ve had met in a couple of years. He also does this marvelous handcrafts with wood from the coffee trees, fantastic animals that lived inside his imagination. To go there and have the pleasure to talk to somebody like him is one of the greatest experiences you can have if you travel to this place. By the way, if you go there tell him to show you the waterfall that is in the back of the “beneficio”.

In this article, I'll show you the usual route I take whenever I walk through the streets of Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong, this time in preparation for making a puppet called Mr. Golden. Sham Shui Po is famous for its stores selling fabrics and other clothing supplies, as well as electronic accessories. It is also full of different places to explore.
Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally.
And it all comes down to darkness.
Stop bath is a type of chemical used in the darkroom for processing black and white film, aptly named as such because it halts the development of the images. In this case, stop bath is also part of the title that Korean analogue street photographer <b><a href="http://instagram.com/sooeatsyourstreetforbreakfast">Soomin Yim</a></b> has given her body of work, "Stop Bath the City," to represent the forgotten faces of people in the city amid rapid modernization, captured and immortalized on black and white film.
