Ever since starting to shoot film again after a longish foray into the digital world, I have been looking for a replacement for my beloved Kodak Technical Pan, which was discontinued at the turn of the millennium.
After my first encounters with the Rolleicord 1a – 2 – Model K3 a friend had given me as a present, I decided to take a closer look at this piece of fine engineering.
Finding Sieglinde Hefftner, my mother, seemed like a good way of trying out a recent addition to my evolving collection of film cameras.
From the early 1940s to the early 1950s my mother worked at Harry Glocke’s Photo Studio
After my first exposure to working with large format sheet film in a DIY pinhole camera, I decided to explore this line of film photography a bit further.
Some time ago I read about a workshop dedicated to instructing participants in building their own pinhole camera and venturing into the field to record some images. Somehow this idea resonated with me.
