Rolleiflex 3.5F

Rolleiflex 3.5F and Agfa Ultra 50 – Taveling in Turkey and Pakistan

The Rolleiflex 3.5F wasn’t my first TLR – that honour goes to the MPP Microcord. But the Rolleiflex is a name up there with Leica and Carl Zeiss.

When one thinks of a TLR, images from TV and Film from ages past come to mind – of Movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe and used by greats to make some of the most iconic photographs in history: such as David Bailey, Richard Avedon, Robert Doisneu, Fritz hence, Eduard Boubat, Lee Miller and Robert Capa amongst many others.

To combat the ever-present cabin fever symptoms, I’ve made it a point to go on solo photo walks and document the empty scenes of a city on hold.
