It is named after my grandfather’s small business, which he started in 1940s South Texas in a small town located on Highway 90. In addition to his repair and engineer work for Santos Electric Service, he was a hobbyist in photography and film from an early age. I grew up in the family house where he’d built his own darkroom, complete with photographic enlarger and developing materials, an old Bell & Howell projector, and reels of 8mm films that he’d shot and developed himself. Though I never met him, I think I might’ve inherited his fascination with the image-making process and his DIY aesthetic.
