A Hopeful Dystopia

The series Station Eleven is the inverse of everything we’ve come to expect from the postapocalyptic genre. Rather than a gray, desaturated landscape, the show’s post-pandemic world is lush, green, alive. It occasionally depicts the magnitude of the catastrophe, but it is mostly about small things: the mundanity of the apocalypse inside a small midwestern airport, a marriage that is falling apart. “It isn’t this Cormac McCarthy–bleak desert landscape,” director Hiro Murai says. “It has, weirdly, a childlike wonder to it.”

Why I Built a Camera to Bring Back 20×24-Inch Instant Photography

During the long pandemic quarantine, I bought a laser cutter the size of a small Volkswagen to cut ventilator prototype parts, Brooklyn Film Camera Polaroid scan trays, and a number of other photographic equipment parts. I bought the largest cutter that I could fit in my shop, because I had been dreaming of the 20×24 Polaroid and Afghan box cameras since I was about 16 years old.

The Most Unique Lens? Leica 16-18-21mm Tri-Elmar F4 Review

Wide angle lenses tend to be built with specificity in mind. They are rarely designed to be your main workhorse.

Street Photography Tips & Techniques in New York City

I often think that photography enthusiasts talk too much about photographic equipment and too little about the actual photos that they take. It may also be relevant to talk about photographic equipment if you are going to buy something new, but in my opinion, once you have it just go out into the world and use it!

Leica D-Lux 7 Vans x Ray Barbee Edition Reps Skating’s Checkered Past

Skateboarding fashion and footwear brand Vans has been on a tear with numerous collaborations extending the outreach of their legacy lifestyle, a trend we could have never guessed looking back when we used to lace up Off the Wall kicks before heading out to skate when Vans was still primarily a SoCal-specific brand. One of the more surprising of these recent co-branded efforts is with premium imaging brand, Leica Camera AG. Created in partnership with skater, musician, and photographer, Ray Barbee, the limited-edition Leica D-Lux 7 Vans x Ray Barbee digital camera wears Vans’ most iconic checkerboard pattern proudly.

What’s In My Bag: A Compact Kit For Commercial & Landscape Photography

Sameer Ahmed (@sameer.design) is a commercial and landscape photographer based in Edmonton, AB, Canada. “I got into photography as a hobby and realized that I was exploring a lot more to find good places to photograph, the whole experience seemed so rewarding. I am lucky to be living so close to the Rockies and get to photograph them in different seasons.” When he’s around the mountains, he’s often hiking to get some good shots or riding his motorcycle to the mountain in summer, so he tends to travel light and his Sony gear allows him to do exactly that. We connected with him to learn more about the super simple Sony Alpha camera and Sony lens kit he uses– read more below.

Meet Julie Vincent

Julie Vincent is anything but ordinary, actually, in her words, she’s more of a ‘renaissance person.’. Vincent is a first-generation Calgarian, as both her parents hail from the east in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. She was born and raised here, fleeing to Montreal for three years, but despite loving the new city she eventually made her way back to Calgary — the place where she feels most at home.

Do you think any street photographer does what I do? Come with me in this route. PLEASE NOTE: The Cuautepec area, one of the upper parts of the Gustavo A Madero Mayor's Office, is famous for everything. It is considered one of the most dangerous and one of the red areas of the capital, where shootings are frequent, due to clashes between criminal groups, forgotten by the authorities. With very high levels of marginalization and is one of the points in Mexico City with the highest number of high-impact crimes related to drug trafficking and kidnapping, according to official reports.
