sad day for experimental camera builders :(

Yesterday Ric Globus, one third of the powerhouse known as the Globus Brothers, suddenly and unexpectedly passed while creating art in his Florida home. Many camera builders still look to the accomplishments that came from this powerhouse trio for inspiration. The SpinShot and Travelwide are just two recent examples that can be directly linked back to the Globus Brothers.
I was just getting to know Ric after he bought the Globuscope 4x5 that I refurbished and sold at the end of last year.  Through Facebook we chatted several times a week about cameras both new and old.  I regularly shared the cameras I was building with him and he was generous with support and encouragement. 

His passing is a loss for the photo and art community, may his creative curiosity and enthusiasm live on...
