Victor Hasselblad (1906 - 1978) was a Swedish entrepreneur and photographer who is best known as the founder of the Hasselblad company, renowned for producing high-quality cameras. Hasselblad initially worked as an apprentice in his father's photography business before establishing his own company, Victor Hasselblad AB, in 1941. The company initially focused on producing aerial surveillance cameras for the Swedish military during World War II. However, Hasselblad's vision extended beyond military applications, and he sought to create cameras that would meet the demanding requirements of professional photographers.
In 1948, Hasselblad introduced the Hasselblad 1600F, the first civilian camera produced by his company. It featured a modular design, medium format film, and interchangeable lenses, revolutionizing the field of photography. The Hasselblad cameras quickly gained a reputation for their exceptional image quality, precision, and reliability, and they became widely used by professional photographers, including in space exploration missions.
