The New York Times Lens Blog has a story about Jürgen Schadeberg (a Leica shooter) and some of his documentary work in South Africa in a piece called "A German Rebel in South Africa." Starting with coverage of the anti-apartheid movement in the 1950s, to returning in 1985 to live with his wife, Claudia, and began making documentary films about apartheid, Drum, South African jazz and the history of Robben Island. After Nelson Mandela was freed in 1990, he and his wife were invited to his house for a New Year’s Eve party. Mr. Schadeberg continued to publish photography books on social justice, and he filmed the first free elections in 1994 for a documentary he and his wife made.

Andrew Spencer shared with us a really neat story about a good friend and his dad - and an amazing collection of cameras... Including a very nice Leica M2 with 35mm, 50mm and 90mm lenses that he was given access to. Read more about this story in his blog post, "1928 - The Leica Story" and be sure to check out the pictures as well. Sorry to hear of your friend's dad passing Andrew, and thanks for sharing this with us!
