In your bag No: 548, Eric Genevrier
What a bag. This is for all those who love a bit of 4×5 goodness. Nothing f¥digital about this, just good old fashioned photographic technique. Check it out.

My name is Eric. I’m currently living in Paris, working as a freelance photographer and teaching photography.

In my bag (I try to keep it the lightest possible…but it’s not so easy with 4×5 gear!) :

-Wista 45 DX

-Fuji 150mm f/5,6

-10 Fidelity Elite film older (loaded with Foma 100)

-Sirui tripod + FLM centerball 32FB head

-iPhone 4 as lightmeter

I mainly shoot landscape. But I definitively want to make more portraits in my next projects.

You can browse some of my works here:

Thanks !


Thanks for sharing this with us Eric. I love it. I am pretty much convinced that my next step is a 4×5 camera.

    Interesting bag! I shoot with a Linhof Super Technika V and have been on the lookout for a backpack that could hold the camera and a couple of lenses along with the film holders. Where can I find a 4×5 film pouch like that (it looks like a Chinese brand of some sort), and the backpack looks pretty lightweight!

      The bag looks to me like a freeride skiing rucksack – to carry avalanche gear: shovel, probe etc.

      The tan backpack is just a standard looking tactical pack with molle connectors on it.

      The case for the film holders can be found on eBay by searching for KangRinpoche. Or if you want a fancy Western brand name you can search for a Silvestri film holder bag.

    Have a look at Eric’s website. Great work. Eric finds a particular visual language for each of his themes. The rhetorical / technical means, which he chooses, give his images either a documentary, poetical, dramatical or rough expression. He doesn’t leave the look of his works to an app, but makes his decisions very clearly. That’s what I call true expertise.
