Looking for the next gorgeous Rolleiflex camera to add to your collection? Our latest vintage find will let you add not one but FOUR units of the limited edition Rolleiflex 2.8 FX Platinum, made as part of a commissioned project with the American fine art nude photographer, Jock Sturges. If you’re particularly interested in special edition cameras like these, we’re sure this eye-catching set will suit your fancy!
This impressive set is listed by Lisse, Netherlands eBay seller leica-store-lisse for a Buy It Now price of $39,995, featuring all four versions of the special Jock Sturges Platinum Edition of the Rolleiflex 2.8 FX. So, for that price, you’ll get four cameras, four signed copies of The Rollei Project book, and four different framed photos that measure 25.4 x 28.6 cm. While the three models come in white, red, and blue leather coverings, the one with a black leather covering is marked with “PROTOTYP” instead of a serial number, indicating that it’s a model made for the actual produced units. There is also an especially engraved platinum plate on the side of the cameras.
The listing also included a bit of history about these special Jock Sturges edition Rolleiflex cameras. In Spring 2012, Leica Store Lisse and Foto Henry Hoogeveen owner Duncan Meeder made an offer to collaborate with Jock Sturges for a book of photos shot with a Rolleiflex camera. “Bemused and even a bit skeptical at first, Jock Sturges eventually could not let go of the Rolleiflex Twin Lens Reflex 6×6 that he was presented with. After four months and hundreds of rolls of film, the result was a beautifully designed book with even more beautiful images.”
Artdaily added that The Rollei Project is comprised of images that Sturges shot in Seattle (where he lives), California, Florida, and France. Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam also did an exhibit showcasing photos from the book and the special edition cameras.
