Mickey Pallas - Photographer

BY J A GINSBURG
@ VOL 32 ON DEC 02, 2014

Mickey Pallas was rarely without a camera in hand. In the early days, it was a Graflex, the classic Front Page-style press camera that used sheet film measuring 4 x 5 inches. That was replaced by a twin lens reflex Rollei that used roll film measuring a little over 2 inches square. And finally, the revolutionary 35mm Leica, a camera he adored so much that he also collected them. Janet A. Ginsburg tells the fascinating story this iconic Chicago photographer.
