At the beginning of the 70s (as well as at the end of the 60s), I was involved in photochemical muddling. I saw how many secrets and possibilities there are in this darkroom 'kitchen'. I kind of regret that I did not give a name to this searching at the right time. I regret even more that I did not make a separate, individual exhibition with this message and these ideas. My penance for neglecting to name this idea and for the absence of an exhibition is unfamiliarity with my accomplishments from this period of creative activity'.
