Garry’s M4

I stumbled onto these pictures of Garry Winogrand’s Leica through a camera dealer’s website- talk about patina. Upon close inspection you can see exactly where his palm and fingers came in contact with the body throughout his life as a photographer. Even more impressive is the impression of film sprockets on the pressure plate- in layman’s terms: he shot a lot of film.
