Repairing & Revisiting a Voigtländer Vito CL – Here there be Dragons – By Has Gustafsson

“Here there be Dragons” – a text said to be found at the very edge of maps a long time ago when the world was still not explored.

I can’t recall any family vacation, outing, gettoghether when I was young that my dad didn’t have his Voigtländer with him. It almost seemed an integral part of him. Not that he ever showed any interest in photography as such, but he really liked to document his life. As a result he has a vast collection of photographs. Mostly slides, lots of Kodachromes obviously but also other brands and stocks. All slowly deteriorating. I am in a [really slow] process of scanning them and setting up some kind of digital archive, spanning from the early 60’s up until mid or late 80’s. I have a slight hope of presenting him with this archive before he turns 90yo next year.
