My father’s ROLLIEFLEX,
A legendary a 50’s era 2 and a quarter square medium format twin lens camera second only to Leica in famous photographers having used it, often concurrently, or as different situations demanded. Lightweight elegant and versatile, it sets you apart from a digital mainstream who have tragically lost touch with intuition, beauty and finesse of film photography. This is a timeless piece of photographic history. 125.00the following is from the NYT book review, and regards Dorthea LangeBoth Linda Gordon's Dorothea Lange and Anne Whiston Spirn's Daring to Look hew to the line that Lange suddenly became a documentary photographer in 1932, when she stepped out of her portrait studio at 540 Sutter Street in San Francisco's fashionable Union Square and took her Rolleiflex out onto the streets of the Mission District, three miles away, where she began to photograph men on the ever-lengthening breadlines in the last year of Hoover's presidency. But this is to underplay the importance of the pictures she took from 1920 onward when she accompanied her first husband, Maynard Dixon, on his months-long painting trips to Arizona and New Mexico.
