There is a dramatic story behind an anonymous Italian photographer's huge, peculiar collection of cameras and how he acquired them. With a father disliking his early interest and penchant to collect cameras since the 1960's, he was beaten after he found out he bought another Leica -- and that very moment was what motivated the Italian photographer to make a living out of photography.
He does not only collect cameras. He collects photography books, vintage magazines and manuals. Now, he has curated photography history.
