Names of Famous Photographers that use Linhof : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread


Are there any books of famous photographers that use Linhof extensively? I know there are several books featuring photographers that mainly shoot with Nikons, Leicas, Hasselblads, Graflexes, etc. But how about Linhof??? I love vintage photography books from the 40's, 50's and 60's and would love to find a source with several Linhof photographs (Other than "Large Format Photography" which featured Linhof). Thanks for your recommendations.

Just about anything by David Muench or John Fielder.

John Sexton has several books. He shoots Technikardan 45 and some recent version of the Technika (Master Technika 2000?).

Have a look at Japan: Shinzo Maeda uses Technika, Toyo Field and Hassi.

I have no doubts that Ansel would have used a Linhof if they had given him one...

Didn't this come up in the Wright Morris thread--wanted a Linhof, but couldn't afford it?

Maybe this could be another list: great photographers who wanted a Linhof, but never made enough money to acquire one.

The latest issue of Black & White shows Philip Hyde using a Technika. The picture was taken years ago....................................
