Christopher Burkett has spent four decades photographing landscapes with a large format film camera. It’s no easy feat. Burkett has to lug the large camera around, struggle with depth of field and battle motion blur.

But Burkett’s biggest challenge is a looming deadline: the moment he runs out of his 10 year supply of Cibachrome paper.

The NewsHour documents Burkett’s work, his printing process and the bittersweet reality that he will soon be closing the lights in his darkroom for the last time.
