In your bag 938, Alex Roska
Alex has a really cool film bag for us. I see he also is rather fond of traditional European knives. Check it out.


Just wanted to say you’re doing a great job keeping film alive and showing the world that analog photography is not dead.

I’m Alex, a 30 yrs old photographer & writer from Romania. I previously owned 2 commercial photography studios but I quit that and am now working as a copywriter in advertising. For digital, I work on a Nikon D700 but for my personal projects, I try to focus mainly on film.

So here’s (part) of my bag:
– a vintage Swiss military medical bag
– handmade leather wallet
– two knives for whatever: a Swiss army knife and a french Opinel no.7
– two Moleskine plain notebooks
– Parker, Mont Blanc and Borghini fountain pens and ink cartridges in vintage leather holders
– Hasselblad 500c with 80mm Planar T*
– Nikon F2 Photomic with a 28-85 mm Nikkor
– Nikon 35ti

I also shoot on a Polaroid Land Camera 100, a Rolleiflex 621 and a lovely Mamiya RB67 Pro S, but the beast has its own case as it is too large and is best operated indoors.

You can check some of my work on my website

Cheers, keep on shooting and feeding our imagination with those camera legends around the world. Your blog has a great feeling to it – truly beautiful objects that make great people stay happy and alive and true to themselves.

All the best,

Thanks for sharing your bag with us. I wish I could carry my Opinel, but sadly it is illegal in Japan.
