In your bag 948, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko
This bag is certainly international. Russia, France and Tokyo all in one. Check it out.

Hello hello,
My name’s Gueorgui, and I’m a Russian guy living in Tokyo after growing up in France.

Here are the rather simple contents of my bag:

The two cameras I carry with me almost every day are a black paint Leica MP with a 35mm Summicron ASPH, and a recently acquired Fujifilm TX-1 with a 45mm lens for panoramic work. I’m also carrying two film cases (one for unexposed rolls, and one for the exposed ones), and a kindle for reading during downtime. The bag is a Domke FX3 — it’s very ragged and full of holes, but it’s served me well over the years.

Rangefinders are my first love. The first serious camera that I ever bought for myself was a broken Leica M4 from eBay that I got repaired and learned the basics of photography with. I since went through various Leica setups, including a M8 and a M6 TTL, before settling on the MP, which I’ve now used for about 5 years. I’ve tried various other setups during my photographic life, from compact film cameras to 6×7 medium format and Canon DSLRs, but I always ended up coming back to rangefinders, and here I am now.

Here’s where to find me online:

Thanks for looking, and happy shooting :)

Thanks for sharing your bag with us Gueorgui. Two of my favourite rangefinders.

    Gueorgui-I really like the way you see things…I find your work inspiring. I feel an instant connection to the people in your photos. By the way, what kind of film(s) are you using?

      Thank you for the kind words, Stuart :) I’m glad you like my pictures. As for the films, I’ve been using mostly Neopan 400 (sometimes pushed to 1600) for black and white, and Ektar 100 for color. My favorite film is Tri-X, but it’s pretty much impossible to find in Japan these days — I’m planning to restock on it when I visit home next month.
