Cary Grant by F.C. Gundlach
From his early freelance days until late into the 1950s, Gundlach used a Rolleiflex camera with a built-in 75mm lens. For studio-made cover shots, he used a Linhof large image camera. From 1956 on, he used Hasselblads with interchangeable lenses for images in 6x6cm format, achieving greater variation of perspective and composition. From the mid-1950s, he also used Leica, a small 35mm rangefinder with a wide-angle lens, which was later replaced by Nikon. Gundlach explained his overall lens preference as: “28mm was my lens. Because one could get closer, one could get a steeper perspective and a sharper depth of field, even with multiple image levels,”
