This t-shirt is for all the Rolleiflex fans out there. The graphic represents the two lens layout that is on the famous Rolleiflex 2,8F, one of the most legendary TLR cameras in the history of photography.

This camera was used by masters of photography like Richard Avedon, Robert Doisneau, Diane Arbus, Imogen Cunningham, Alfred Eisenstadt, Cecil Beaton, Vivian Maier, and also loved by amateurs like Paul McCartney, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe 🙂

The Rolleiflex TLR film cameras were notable for their exceptional build quality, compact size, modest weight, superior optics, durable, simple, reliable mechanics and bright viewfinders. They were popular and widely imitated. The high-quality 8 cm focal length lenses, manufactured by Zeiss and Schneider, allowed for a smaller, lighter, more compact camera than their imitators.

The graphic design was made by sketching and tracing and and the making the lineout of the metal parts of the front elements of the camera: the two lens, levers, setting knobs, self timer button. The outcome is a geometric and abstract design that will trigger other’s curiosity.
