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.

Joseph Wilcox (b. 1984) is an artist and educator living in Chicago. His 'zines are part of small publishing libraries nationally and internationally. As an artist, Wilcox takes on the role of object-maker, documentarian, curator, and project organizer to explore how institutional control and social power structures undermine the autonomy of the individual. He was most recently the co-founder and photo editor of LDOC, a free yearlong photography and creative writing publication that was distributed on the Red Line train in Chicago. Wilcox holds a BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design and an MFA from the Lesley University College of Art and Design. He is a current resident in HATCH Projects and teaches contemporary art practices to high school students in Chicago.
"Hall Pass" is a student-based project for which Mr. Wilcox's students use a Canon AE-1 film camera as their hall pass, and make photos during their time away from class...
On sale at the Opening Reception are 'zines and prints of "Hall Pass."
All sales from this Exhibit images and 'zines go to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe DAPL Donation Fund, as suggested and voted on by the students.
