Typographic Photography by Arne Lind

Johnston Underground, London May 1985

Hello, I am Arne. I live and work in Stockholm, Sweden. I work as a graphic designer and I became interested in photography in the late 1960s. The interest raise during the 1980s as art director for a Photo magazine (FOTO).

A wide range of cameras have been used over the years. Mostly Leicas. M2, M3, M5, M6 and a Leicaflex SL2. In early years Practica, Yashica, Canon, Hasselblad 1000F. Later, besides the Leicas, Canon Dial, Nikon, mostly FM and FE, occasionally a Leica CL, a Minox 35, Pentax 6x7, Hasselblad 500C and so on. The film has mainly been Kodak Tri‑X. Negatives are scanned in 16-bit (positive scan then inverted), Photoshop is used for the final work which is limited to dust and scratches besides cropping and image contrasts.
