In your bag 458, Daniel Weiss
Daniel is a man of few words it would seem. So we shall let his bag and his work speak for itself.

Daniel Weiss from NYC.
I mostly take documentary style portraits of people I don’t know.

The equipment I use:

Billingham bag

Leica M2 w 35mm Summicron

Leica M4-p w 50mm summicron

Leica 28mm Elmarit

A good amount of Tri-X at all times.

Sekonic meter


Thanks for sharing your bag with us Daniel. I admire the simplicity of it.

    Some great photos in chapter 1 and 2 on your site.

    Really amazing stuff ch.1 & ch.2 as the other Alex said.

    Liked the ‘go fast, turn left’ series as well. The word raw is over used, but certainly some raw images throughout that compilation.

    Very nice pictures on your photo blog and website – everyone should check these out! What Billingham bag is this in the photo? Can I ask, do you print in the darkroom, or scan and inkjet print? I am also curious what you do for development – really nice consistant work! Thanks

      Hey Andy,

      Glad you enjoyed the work.
      I process everything in D-76, then scan it with an epson v700.
      Unfortunately I don’t get into the darkroom enough.
      As Chris Pointed out in the comment below, it is indeed a Billingham Hadley bag.

    NIce work. Seriously, REALLY nice. Googled you and learned from a couple blog articles that you are in your 20’s and apparently have no social media presence whatsoever. Very interesting, that’s some well cultivated mystique there, my man. Refreshing especially considering the plague of obnoxious “street” enthusiasts flooding the internet with a lot of bluster and mediocrity. Love the blog, so much work there and some thoughtful titles to go along with it all. And the bag? Well a Hadley seems to looks best well worn, which you’ve obviously done all on your own. Keep doing what you’re doing and thanks for sharing the great work.

      Thanks Chris for noticing my carefully cultivated mystique, it’s not easy keepin that up … just kidding.
      Hopefully will have some new work up soon.
      Thanks for the kind words.

    That’s absolutely briliant work on your website Daniel. I love the variation in subject, but al with the same style.

    Great colour work in the ‘color blues’ section. I expect your name will become much more known in time! A bright future ahead, me thinks…

      Daniel Weiss March 23, 2013 at 12:12 am /

      Thanks Mark,
      Hopefully you’re right…
