The amount of awesome in this photo is ridiculous.
The camera is the Hasselblad 500E. It’s exactly like the 500C, except it had a motor drive that advance the film at a speed of 1.5 frames per second. It came with two rechargeable NiCd batteries. He also has a eye finder, instead of the waist level finder. You have to put this up to your eye to see, like a regular camera. The bellows in front of the lens were probably used to achieve macro focusing of the subject.
From ‘Darkroom’, a book by photographer Adam Bartos, a sort of anthropological study of the darkroom as it becomes an obsolete space in the world of photograph creation. Showing a series of still-life scenes from various darkrooms, predominately in New York, the world of darkroom development is observed.
