I checked his site but come on, is that really what we consider a ''famous photographer''? I'm not trying to know him. He seems to be a professional photographer with a long career but I can't imagine how anyone would pay a lot of money to have his beat up camera.
It's not like Winogrand's camera. Winogrand is a pretty significant photographer in the history of 20th century street photography and I can understand how someone would want his camera as a collector's item.
