...but his funeral notice put a small smile on my face! Here in secular Sweden it is quite common to have an icon in your funeral notice, rather than the christian cross (which is still dominating though), and most notices feature an icon that is chosen to represent the person in question. So this morning I found a nice one:

The person was born in '22 and it turns out he lived a few streets from me. I couldn't find any of his pics on the interweb (not really surprising), but it would have been cool to have talked to him, maybe he was one of those 'real' press photographers back in the days. Hmm, if only I knew.

Anybody knows what camera it is supposed to be?

From the shape of the pull strap on the front standard, I would guess a Linhof Technika 3.
