The Rangefinder Gallery is part of the Tamarkin Camera showroom, located in the River North Gallery district in downtown Chicago.
Showcasing works from the Leica camera is a natural extension of our passion for the brand. We are proud to exhibit work by Leica photographers from Chicago and around the world. The Rangefinder Gallery is dedicated to un-retouched film and digital photographs from the legendary Leica M camera.
Friday, October 7
6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Our world’s cultures are rich, societies differ in mannerisms, and peoples celebrate life (and lives) in vastly diverse ways. Working quietly with inconspicuous Leica rangefinder cameras, in a “street photography” or “decisive moment” style is my preference in pursuit of honest views of humanity.
“Images which reflect quirkiness in society, mixed with spontaneity and some humor, are what I strive to create. From a young photojournalist, through decades of sports coverage, advertising commissions in adventure /lifestyle, and back to pure documentation (now including documentary cinema), have influenced the style of this and other long-term photographic projects I’ve produced. An on-going endeavor, “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) is a historical view of the Mexican/ Latin culture honoring their loved ones who have since past from our world.”
