The Rangefinder Gallery at Tamarkin Camera

The Rangefinder Gallery is part of the Tamarkin Camera showroom, located in the River North Gallery district in downtown Chicago.

Tamarkin Camera – America’s Premier Leica Specialist Since 1971 – is the largest Leica Camera showroom in the Midwestern United States, and one of the largest in the world.

Showcasing un-retouched film and digital photographs from the legendary Leica camera is a natural extension of our passion for the Leica brand.

We are proud to exhibit work by Leica photographers from Chicago and around the globe and to be a hub for both established and emerging photographers, as well as for connections around the brand and between photographers.

Both the Rangefinder Gallery and the Tamarkin Camera showroom are open to the public. 

Please contact us for information on current and upcoming exhibitions and to see what is new!


New as of 2019:

Tamarkin Camera Artist Talk & Photo Walks

Call 312-642-2255 or email now to reserve your seat at future sessions, usually following the opening of a new exhibition in the gallery.

The Photo Walk includes an informal box lunch here in the gallery, from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. or so, and costs $50 per person (or $85 per couple).

You do not need to own a camera – you can use a Tamarkin Camera Leica camera if you wish... just let us know ahead of time.

During the walk we’ll get the opportunity to have “face time” with accomplished and traveled photographers. Each Photo Walk is strictly limited to 12 participants so that we all have the chance to ask questions and get feedback.

Dan Tamarkin, owner of Rangefinder Gallery
