Bag no.7 and it is coming from Genoa in Italy
This bag belongs to Roberto Nania, who hails from Genoa in Italy. Roberto is rocking a classic Domke F3-X in black, which is battered and bruised, making it all the more desirable.
Let’s let Roberto tell us more:
This bag is very important to me as it was gave to me as a present from the photographer I worked to while in Milan some years ago, Ramak Fazel. Well, Ramak used the same bag in those years and I was fasinated on how useful it was and how many things it could contain without becoming a luggage; I never saw a bag like that in Italy before; after some years a received by mail a box with the same brand new bag in it and I’ve been using it every time since then; now it’s pretty worn and discoloured.
At the moment it contains a black Nikkormat FT with a black 50mm Nikkor f2, lenshood, lens cap, a yellow filter, a small brush and a cell phone. I bought this camera few weeks ago on the bay, I was caught by its cleanness and simplicity (I’m a Nikon user from my first FM something like 14 years ago). It’s loaded with his first roll, the beautiful Tri-X.
Roberto does not have a site at the moment, but he will be putting one up in the near future, when he does I shall be updating this post so that you can all visit and show your support.
I love the simplicity of this set, and the classic nature of the bag and the camera. Well done Roberto.
