These are the gems of the monochrome photos taken using the classic twin lens reflex Rolleiflex,
covering the history of the photographer with this camera. My passion for the 6 × 6 square format and great attachment to Rollei are very apparent in this collection. The theme of Volume 1 is Classic. My monochrome world will inspire in you nostalgia for the beauty and reassuring retro ambience of the good old days. Takako Takahashi profile June 12, 2004 I encountered the Rolleiflex on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of my marriage and fell in love with it at first sight. The first camera I ever owned was a twin lens reflex. Enchanted by the square world of the reflected images, I traveled around taking photos, mainly landscapes, and confined myself inside the darkroom day after day to represent what I saw in monochrome. The square space visible through the viewfinder somehow relaxes me. It will keep inviting me into a different dimension of my surroundings in the future. With deep admiration for such a world, I press the shutter release.
