In your bag 416, Paul Llorca
Wow, this is a 14 year olds bag! And just look at it, what a bag. But before you all moan about how a 14 year old has a Leica, read on about how he came to have it.

Hey Bellamy !

So I’m Paul Llorca, a 14 (and a half) year only film “photographer”, from Clermont-Ferrand, France. I’ve started film (and photgraphy) about 6 months ago, with a Konica Pop and a Zorki 4. My gear has really changed since that time, and I wanted to show it to you. By the way, it’s the setup I’m gonna take to a short trip to Paris.

The bag is a random Nikon I got with the Nikon F2.

1- The Cameras:
-Leica M4 and Summicron 50mm F/2: First, don’t think I’m a spoiled kid because I own a Leica M camera. It was gracefully given to me (and the Nikon F2) by the widow of a friend of my family, to be precise, the doctor who gave birth to me . It’s an awesome setup, very discret and well built. It’s loaded with T-Max 100. It’s usualy on my shoulder.
-Nikon F2 black and Nikkor-S Auto 35mm F/2.8: Great camera, really sleek, and great for night shots.
-Konica Big Mini Jr. : Great little point’n’shoot camera, super cheap, and with no light leaks (I hate light leaks). It’s currently loaded with Agfa Vista 200.

2-Lens and accesories:
-Nikon Micro-Nikkor 55mm F/3.5 : Never had the occasion to try that lens, I will give it a test run in Paris.
-Film case: It’s not a Bikkuri Case, but a slide film holder. I can fit about 6 rolls of film, but it’s only loaded (for now) with Tri-x 400, Ilford HP5 400 and Fuji Sensia 200. I’m really looking forward some Portra 400.
-Nikon DR-3 viewfinder: For weird angle shots

3-Misc stuff:
-Marshall Major Headphones
-iPad 1st gen
-Swatch watch
-Bad Mother F*cker wallet (pretty badass, I Know)
-Moleskine with heavy duty ink pen
-Lip balm
-Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” book
-Raymond Depardon’s “Paysans” (Farmers). If you don’t know Depardon,you should definetly check him out, he did numberous books and movies (and he took, with a Rolleiflex, the official photo of François Hollande, the french president !)
-PS Vita: The quite infamous console from Sony

    Who cares about the age of the person using a Leica as long as they’re using it!

    Nice set up and hope you have/had a nice trip.

    What a wonderful way to get started in photography. I can’t think of a better way. Just think of the stories this young lad can tell in the future when they become a famous photographer. By the way, he’s already famous as he’s been introduced here on Japan Camera Hunter “What’s in Your Bag?”.

    A brave new world, one of my favorite books ever, hope you enjoy it.
