African studio portraits of the 1960s courtesy of Bobson Photography Studio

This. Is. Great. Courtesy of Sara from It’s What I’m Into is this superb collection of photographs taken in the Bobson Photography Studio in South Africa during the early 1960s. Characters from all walks of life entered the studio in order to have portraits made of themselves, often to send to relatives in postcard format. Seeing the clothing and hairstyles of early 1960s South Africa in such frank and honest glory has been a real treat for us today, finding out exactly which cameras they used at the studio (a Yashica Matt 120mm and a Rolliflex 120mm) is just a bonus.
