Since Oliver Sieber got his first Minolta XD7 in 1981 he kept all cameras he ever used in a cabinet in his studio. The collection includes several models by Contax or Plaubel, Hasselblad or Leica, Nikon or Fuji, Canon or Olympus; small, medium or large format – analogue or digital cameras. This collection is broadened with different lenses, flash lights, processors or other technical equipment.
Reasons to by a new camera, a new lense  or a new flash light could be a new project or a new idea for an image for which you needed different equipment, different angels, different material; the other reasons would be be technical development or the shift from analogue to the digital photography. During the last years selling older analogue cameras would have been quite profitable. Now you could almost give some of them away for free.
In Oliver Sieber’s new book »For Sale« you find 51 photographs of cameras, lenses, flash-lights, film holders or other equipment he used over the last 25 years. You will also find 45 „reference-images“ from different photography-series and different decades taken with these cameras; portraits or landscape images, interiors, still-lifes or street photographs. The book also includes a CD with different sounds of all these cameras – a collaboration with Axel Ganz (www.jahrgangsgeraeusche.de) a musician and field recording-artist from Düsseldorf.

[…] Komplett auf die Spitze getrieben wird dasKonzept zuletzt dadurch, dass Sieber demBuch eine Audio-CD beigelegt hat, auf derman die Geräusche seiner Hasselblads,Rodenstocks, Polaroids, Wollensaks, Fu-jis, Nikons, Contax und Ricohs nachhörenwww. bose–prints.comvintage photographs re-discoveredcatawikiWöchentliche Auktionen für Fotokunst & FotobücherEinlieferungen jederzeitwww.catawiki.de/verkaufenkann – vom Öffnen des Faltlichtschachtesüber das Einlegen der Filme und Ansetzender Objektive bis zum Auslösen und Span-nen der Verschlüsse. Das klingt total ner-dig? Ist es auch. Aber es hat auch einesinnliche Ebene und macht zudem Sinn,denn jeder Fotograf, der sein Equipmentkennt und liebt, wird schon am Geräuscherkennen, ob irgendetwas nicht in Ord-nung ist und ob die Aufnahme möglicher-weise misslungen ist. read more please > click
