“A motion picture worker, Goro Yoshida simply tore down a Leica to see why the camera costed so much, to his astonishment the parts were all inexpensive. He got angry because the prices were high, so he set out to make an inexpensive camera, the Kwanon (named after the Buddhist goddess Kwannon whom Yoshida was a devotee).” Oliver Duong on Todd Gustavson • f/8
