Have you watched Dual Vision?

Charlene journal 2 Comments

Ok, I know I mentioned it in the last post, but I really need to make a big deal out of this because it’s awesome. Well, maybe “awesome” isn’t quite the word for it. But it’s weird. And quirky. And if you haven’t watched it, you really should. Not because you’re going to love it. It may well not be your cup of tea, but you might have a laugh. And the intro is pretty cool. As is the outro. And after being in both the X-E3 promo video and this one, this is the last time I’m going to appear in front of the camera ever…. or if not ever, for many many many years to come. What’s the point of being a photographer …

A Camera With My Name On It and Other Things

Early April 2016, Copenhagen A week before we came to Belgrade, Flemming and I met the man himself, Mr FujIb Thordal (key Fujifilm account manager in Denmark), who had a big box of goodies for us. I unwrapped: A production X-Pro 2 with my name on it X-Photographers Book 2016, with my picture in it Fujifilm 5 Years of X Series: Getting Back To Photography book, also with my picture in it Kamera & Bild magazine’s March Fujifilm Special issue, with my pictures, and an entire story about me in it Being part of the X-Pro 2 launch was a tremendous thing for more than the look-at-me factor. Camera companies don’t market to people like me in general. Mine is not the face you see, or think …

Watch the video Back in May this year, Flemming and I went to Malmö with the Fujifilm Nordic team to listen to the imitable Per-Anders Jörgensen speak about his photography, and the role that the X100T played in the creation of his book, Eating With The Chefs. We got to share an afternoon and a meal with Per-Anders, and interview him for this video. It was an enlightening afternoon that left a deep impression on Flemming and I, so we’re as thrilled as the Fujifilm Nordic team to share this video. Enjoy!

Per-Anders Jörgensen, Eating With the Chefs | Fujifilm Nordic

Charlene journal 10 Comments

I got to attend an incredible event in Malmö yesterday, called Eating With The Chefs, after a book of the same name. It was an event organized by Fujifilm for a small group of customers and retailers, hosted by the inimitable Per-Anders Jorgensen, Eating With The Chefs creator, photographer and co-founder of FOOL Magazine, at the magazine’s headquarters in Malmö, Sweden. Getting to hear Per-Anders Jörgensen share his insights as a photographer of the world’s greatest chefs (and their food), had that rare effect of making me want to throw my cameras away, while infused with a mad desire to make pictures. This is photography at its best: inflamed, driven, transcendental. It was an honour to meet, interview, and share a sublime meal with Per-Anders. Some pictures, made during filming breaks …
