I understand almost nothing

the Forties: 1949



In the year-books of the amateur photoclubs in Holland you will not see the war, devastation, famine, millions of deads. Only in "Photo-art 1942/3" there is one picture with a WWI gas-mask.
A lot of table-top. Composition.
I tried one in the style of the time (title "circles and fruit") with the Argoflex EF from my year of birth. Looks like a Lubitel, but it's 400gr heavier - the only metal model they made. It's 620 but I hammer 120 in.
