In your bag 963, Matthieu Alexandre
Now this one is nice. Just about everything in this bag is something that I have had in my bag at some point or another. Check it out.

My name is Matthieu Alexandre, I am 40, born in Paris, France. I am photographing since 24 years. I process my films and do my print in my personal darkroom for 20 years.

Here is my every day photo bag (a Billingham) :
– Leica M2 (1961)
– summicron 2/35 (1989)
– summicron 2/50 (1965)
– Voigtlander M-4/21 (2012) Note : I’ve had the super-angulon 3.4/21 and the Elmarit 2.8/2. I find the Voigtlander better !
– Leica 21mm viewfinder
– A range of UV, grey and red filters (stored in a Sandisk CF pocket)
– 2 types of lens hood for the 35 (one with a S.VII red filter attached)
– A former Kodachrome slides box to store 4 Kodak Tri-X 135/36 films
– A Domke X-Ray pounch for airport
– A notebook
– A air duster
– A point and shoot digital camera (Ricoh GR 1.9/24mm eq.). I had also the film GR Ricoh at a time !

What else ?

    Excellent photos Matthieu. I was wondering, the photos you made on the projects like Exil, were those taken on your Leica M2 and Tri-X?

      @Vernon : This work has been carried on several years, I used different Leica cameras (M6, M6TTL, M4-P and M2) !

    Daniel, what is that film case you’ve got there? Is it for 3, 4, or 5 rolls? That would be a perfect next addition to the JCH case line!
