    Photographers who shot with a rangefinder and one lens

    Hi guys,

    I'm teaching a college photography course for journalism students and have a simple question.
    We've just finished looking at the work of Cartier-Bresson.
    Do you know of any popular/famous rangefinder shooters who traveled the world and used one lens. You know the type of person who did it all but only shot with a 35mm. I realize some of the early cameras didn't change lenses but I'm looking more for a photographer who had the choice but choose to shoot with one lens.

    Thanks.
    -Rob

    I cant give the exact referance, but I am under the impression that Robert Cappa shot the vast majiority of his work with a 50mm. I was taught that his working motto was "If your work work is not good enough your are not close enoguh enoungh." Most of the miltary cambat PJ in WWII were issued cameras like the Kodak 35 with a fixed lens, or a 4X5 with a single lens.

    I was told Christos Manos shot the project "Where's Boston" with a Leica M3 and a 35mm lens. What he used on other projects I could not answer.

    Not RF, but much excellent work was done with fixed-lens 75 or 80mm Rolleiflex TLR's. Pierre Verger's pictures come to mind.

    I think you actually mean Costa Manos...

    Diane Arbus (spelling?) Margeret Brooks White and others who worked with Speeds and TLRs.

    David Hume Kennerly. It's not 35mm, but Mamiya 7 with a 43mm lens for a year. A fun book.

    Salomon, I believe shot most of his famous Versailles impromptus of polititians with an Ermanox with a very fast lens. He had a frame finder not an optical rangefinder if I'm correct. I saw one of those in a showcase in what I think was the old Olden Camera in New York about two years ago.

    Although he's not in the photojournalism genre, Ralph Gibson reports using a 50mm and Leica M for the majority of his work.
