Central Saint Martins Camera Style

It was good fortune that my friend and colleague Andrea Lioy was also in Japan at the time of my visit. We enjoyed a beer and conversation at this wonderful bar in Osaka. The toilet houses a tiny make-shift darkroom and Durst enlarger.

Meiji Shrine:
Leica M6 with Voigtlander 35mm f1.4 Nokton Classic lens
My M6 with 50mm f2 Summicron lens
Dave’s  M6 with 28mm f2.8 Elmarit Asph. lens
In addition to this M6, I spotted: a Leica M9-P, another M6 (over the shoulder of another foreigner whom I missed as he passed me crossing the street), a Leica M-E, and a Leica M3.  Not bad for a few hours within a few blocks on a Monday afternoon.  Even better these were not in bags but out where cameras need to be- in hands, around necks, or over shoulders.

I spent an afternoon last weekend shooting around Yasukuni Shrine with my good friend Dave Hendley who is in town for a few days from London.  Dave runs Central Saint Martins Camera Style and has been posting some great photos on his own personal tumblr, too: davehendley.tumblr.com
That’s his M6 and Spotmatic F in the pic above with my MP during a break in shooting. You see that little compact camera off to the left and are probably thinking “NO WAY, is that the 1986 European Camera of the year?”  Why yes, yes it is. This Canon Autoboy 3 cost me 540 yen at a junk shop in Shimokitazawa last week and has a databack that has the option to spell out the first three letters of each month instead of just imprinting a number.  That’s pretty neat.

Vest Pocket Kodak: Photographer Martyn Goddard.

This camera was found in a market a few years ago and still has film in it. The other evening there was this TV documentary telling the story of British and German soldiers’ photography during the First World War, a moving document of lives in the trenches and their rapid loss of innocence.
