Kolhapur's Sarvesh Deorukhakar loves looking at the world through filters and pathfinders. He is not much of a photographer, but the more than 500 cameras he has in his collection, including the world's first SLR that was launched in 1935, could make any shutterbug jealous. And when he was invited to showcase his collection at the just-concluded International Film Festival of India in Goa recently, Deorukhakar knew very well that more than the vintage of the cameras on display, the audience was also marvelling at a passion that he never let die.Sarvesh talks about his collection: "I brought close to 200 cameras with me for this exhibition. It has range finders, single lens reflex film cameras and twin lens reflex cameras among others. I also have 110 and 120 SLRs, full- and half-frame cameras, exacta vest pocket model, CS 35 AF, Nilox, Mamiya and Arriflex." Deorukhakar rattles off names of many more cameras about which even seasoned photographers wouldn't have heard of, but the pride in his voice is unmistakable.
