John Cyr's photographic documentation of developer trays is a way to forever capture the history of photography as an art form. Each image is titled after the owner of the tray, as a simple way of recording the significance of the tool.

These John Cyr images are meant to teach young, budding photographers about photography's past, like how darkrooms were the dominant location for the development of fine art photography back in the day. John Cyr's pictures are a reminder, that in a world that has almost become fully digital, these featured tools were the pieces that paved the way for photography today.

Can you imagine all of the brilliant photographs that must have been dunked in the developer trays featured in John Cyr's series?
