Jürgen Schadeberg Talks Leica Cameras and South African Photojournalism

Put together by SixOranges, this four-minute video is an interview with renowned photographer Jürgen Schadeberg. In it, he shares the story behind the collection of Leica cameras he has used throughout his career, many of which were responsible for documenting some of the most iconic photographs of former South African President and icon Nelson Mandela throughout Madiba’s life.

From the M3 through the M9, Schadeberg shares his thoughts on the cameras he’s seen the world through for over six decades, as well as a brief history of how photo publication in South Africa came to be more willing to use 35mm negatives. Whether you’re a film-junkie or just in need of some inspiration, the video is well worth four minutes of your time.
