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.
The Rangefinder Gallery is part of the Tamarkin Camera showroom located in the River North Gallery district in downtown Chicago.
Please visit the Rangefinder Gallery website, too, where you can see the current & past exhibits and more.

Fred Cale is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps, currently the Officer in Charge of the Abu Ghuraib Logistics Base in West Baghdad. Trained as an architect, Cale has a unique point of view that combines a “painterly” quality with a humanistic accent on people. He works almost exclusively with the Leica, using both M and R cameras.
Fred Cale is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps, currently the Officer in Charge of the Abu Ghuraib Logistics Base in West Baghdad. Trained as an architect, Cale has a unique point of view that combines a “painterly” quality with a humanistic accent on people. He works almost exclusively with the Leica, uses wide-angle lenses more than telephoto, and his main photographic tool is a Leica R9 with Digital Module Back and a 21-35mm Vario-Elmar-R.
We are proud to exhibit a limited portfolio from time to time of work done by Leica photographers. This one belongs to Kevin Kuperberg.
Edith Brown is an award-winning painter and sculptor living in southern Connecticut. Two years ago she started, as she says, “fooling around with a digital camera,” and her images here suggest that she has an artist’s eye. She makes photographs for a number of reasons. Her photos serve as a diary, sort of a visual memento. Sometimes they are references for future work in oils or metals, and sometimes they are simply an instantaneous sketch pad, a record of moments that seemed interesting, or moving, or strange.
We are proud to exhibit a sampling of Leica photos by the late Art Ketchum. He is greatly missed.
John Kwok is a New York fine art documentary photographer who has been using Leicas since 1994. A graduate of Brown University, he studied photography with Harold Jones, founding director of both New York City's Light Gallery and the University of Arizona's Center for Creative Photography, and with Jones's colleagues, photographers Joe Labate and Ken Shorr. For most of these photos, he used a Leica M4 and a Leica M6, with an early version of the 35mm Summicron f2 and a 28mm Summicron-M f2 ASPH.
Louis Capeloto specializes in photo journalistic and travel photography. His passion is black and white, capturing the beauty of everyday life, being influenced by the French master photographers of the 1950′s. Paris and Jerusalem are his favorite cities for photography. His work may be seen at Corot Classical Images.
