Many thanks to Alain from whom I have borrowed this amazing camera. One of the rare digital rangefinders that exist, the Epson R-D1. Despite its tiny 6mp sensor, the freedom and weight compared to my bulky 5D make everything easier. There’s no big lens in the face of the subjects, […]
I took this one quickly with Alain’s rangefinder, printed it the same evening and gave back the pic to José the day after. The pic came nicelly and I am pretty proud of the result (15mm Voigtlander on Epson R-D1).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Eugene_Smith Another crazy and genius photographer. I crave for his photographs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Leiter I have felt over time very close to his way to catch glimpses of movements through windows and reflections. His way to play with colored clair-obscur (I haven’t found another term for it) is humbling too.
