Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Amazing story, fascinating photos.

There's a quote 2/3 way down the site Kris intended to link to: "Cusnir's daughter, who died in the summer of 2019, remembers her father returning on his bicycle roaring drunk from his photo explorations​". Anyone admit to the same??

Fascinating, I get that the daughter was so dismissive as she made a link between photography and alcoholism which led to violence by her father, however if there are any descendants I guess they will be pleased to benefit from lucrative royalties.

Oops sorry. If you cut-and-paste the text of the link into your browser it works fine. Could a mod edit my post for me, please? Thanks.
