intro

Dear subscriber, This special issue to accompany GUP Magazine #37 has its origins in the notion of an adventure with a camera. In the Spring of 2012, Duncan Meeder, owner of Foto Henny Hoogeveen in Lisse, The Netherlands, made the American photographer Jock Sturges an offer he could not refuse! Bemused and even a bit skeptical at first, Jock Sturges eventually could not let go of the Rolleiflex Twin Lens Reflex 6x6 that he was presented with. After four months and hundreds of rolls of film, the result was a beautifully designed book. Jock Sturges was kind enough to have a word with our Chief Editor to explain how the project evolved and, more in general, to elaborate on his way of seeing the world. We thank both Duncan and Jock for the opportunity to showcase to our subscribers a number of images that arrive from The Rollei Project publication.

THE NEW LEICA M M as in milestone

De Leica M The is Leica leverbaar M isin available een zwarte in a black of zilverchrome or silverchrome uitvoering. finish.

The new Leica M camera is as compact, discrete and reliable as the legendary M-camera’s from Leica’s heritage. It features a completely newly developed high-resolution full-format CMOS sensor that - in combination with its high-performance processor and the legendary M-lenses - delivers outstanding imaging results up until 3200 ISO. The Leica Maestro processor lets the Leica M set entirely new standards in terms of image-processing speeds. The extremely clear rangefinder with LED frames guarantees a highly accurate focusing in all conditions. The new 2-step shutter release is even more silent than the legendary shutter of the M9. The large, high-resolution 3” LCD-screen allows precise assessment of the subject seen through the lens. This opens up new opportunities for M-photographers that previously lay far beyond the limitations of rangefinder photography, like macro and telephoto exposures, or using the LCD screen with “Live View” and “Pixel Peeking”. With the addition of GPS, tethered shooting and HD1080 video, this new Leica M is currently the most innovative and versatile compact full frame camera around. Discover the most advanced M of all times at www.m.leica-camera.com or visit the Leica Boutique in Lisse for a demonstration.

The Body and The Lens An interview with Jock Sturges by Erik Vroons

For over 30 years, Jock Sturges (1947, USA) has been working with adolescents and their families, both in his native California and at a nudist resort on the Atlantic coast of France. The highly aesthetic portraits that resulted from these sessions are an expression of the trust he has established over the years with his models and are therefore best to be seen as collaborative projects, as pictures ‘made’ together instead of simply ‘taken’ by the photographer. Jock Sturges was in The Netherlands recently to sign the limited edition copies of his new book made with the Rollei Camera Corporation, and GUP Magazine had the opportunity to speak with him in an extended interview.

What is the title of your new book and how did it all come together? JS: The book has been named ‘The Rollei Project’ and was entirely the idea of Duncan Meeder of Foto Henny Hoogeveen in Lisse. Duncan is an expert on collectable Rolleis and Leicas as well as an entrepreneur on the world stage. I was very happy when he proposed this project as it is one of the nicest compliments I have received in my career as a fine art photographer. This motivated me to work exceptionally hard to reward his trust. Four months and hundreds of rolls of film later, Duncan and I sat down and edited this book. Editing books is always agonising because of all that must be cut away to arrive at a final choice but in this instance it was a particular trial. We are both very pleased with the result! >>

Rolleiflex Hy6 Mod2 Analog and Digital: The Best of Both Worlds. Photography means “writing with light�. And it doesn´t make any difference whether you use light-sensitive film or an electronic sensor for the purpose. Only the result matters. Modern digital photography is ideally suited for the rapid and uncomplicated production of outstanding photographs for all kinds of printed matter. The new Rolleiflex Hy6 allows not only the use of conventional film but also the breathtaking advances in the latest digital backs. It fully satisfies the extremely high requirements which digital backs make on a camera: Absolute freedom from vibrations due to linearmotocontrol of shutter blades and instant-return mirror. As a result, photographers are assured of a sound investment in their camera hardware. The high quality demanded of digital image capture has made a well thought-out camera system like the Rolleiflex Hy6 indispensable. A combination of a 6x6 medium-format camera and a high-performance back is the ideal tool for photographers seeking high mobility, be it in the studio or on location. As the flagship medium-format model, the Rolleiflex Hy6 is based on the time-tested Rolleiflex 6008 System. In other words, in the focus indication mode, its AF system is fully compatible with all earlier PQ/PQS lenses, including their accessories.
