    I read that he had thousands of rolls of film undeveloped when he died. That sort of explains the condition of his Leica. An interesting comment he made in a video I saw on him was that he didn't develop his film until something like a year after he shot it. He didn't want the memory of the situation or moment to cloud his judgment of the worthiness of the image. What a fascinating guy he was.

  2. Here's a video interview with Henry Wessel, another of my favorite photographers, where he essentially says the same thing.
