A photo made with my Rolleiflex TLR from 1950 : model K7A

Having said/posted that, maybe best if you search for the warm African portraits of Malick Sidibe, a master photographer who works/used to work with a similar medium format camera.

More about Rolleiflex

Anybody out there who works with a vintage-classic-antique Rolleiflex and uploaded some Rolleiflex work on the internet? Let’s hear from you !

  1. Vitaly, thanks for sharing. woh! quite something else where you are. I would not mind coming over with my TLR and do some shooting in your region. (nice change from nasty cold showers over here – NL/BE – I think my focus would be on African trees. Saw a photo of great tree taken by you.
    B.T.W. I had never heard of PMK pyro. But just found this http://www.jackspcs.com/pmk.htm
    Interesting.
    I also looked up http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00EsOH
    And I admit looking up info on Togo. Tres interessant aussi. Salut.

  2. Greetings.

    Wonderful images! I’m getting more and more drawn to Africa, as I would like to explore documentary photography and see for myself what Africa is about. The latter partly because of my job at ECDPM (mission in short : building effective political economic and developmental relationships between African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and Europe. Reinforcing the capacities of public, private and non-profit organisations in ACP countries). As I’m not a “field worker” I do not travel to Africa. But of course I follow all our projects and hear/see from colleagues.

    I will share this link with ECDPMers : http://africanmoped.free.fr/indexen.html
    One colleague will be especially interested. She cycled around the world for 2 years but only recently in Africa : Mali and Morocco.

    Here’s the link to website of Belgian photographer who among other cameras also works with 30 year old Rolleiflex and makes brillant b/w portraits: http://www.stephanvanfleteren.com

    Dreaming about doing photo projects of people and trees/nature in the South, in the near future and meeting keen and kind photographers 😉 …
