Leica M Special Edition

Posted by Jon M









Apple chief of design Jony Ive and industrial designer Marc Newson worked together to design a one of a kind special edition of the Leica M rangefinder camera, to be auctioned at a charity event with the proceeds going towards (RED), the charity founded by Bono from U2 to support the fight against HIV and AIDS, and is expected to raise anywhere between $500,000-$750,000.

It is said that it took Ive and Newson 85 days and over 500 models to come up with the final product, which features a laser machined aluminum body and an anodized aluminum outer shell, a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (as the $7,000 Leica M), and it includes a 50mm f/2 lens.

Erlend Oye – “La Prima Estate”

The man that gave some of us our favorite Royksopp song, Smiths cover, the face of Kings Of Convenience, and the soul of The Whitest Boy Alive, and pretty much my idol has a new single… and its in Italian. I have mixed feelings, I don’t dislike it, I really don’t want to listen to it again today because of the Olive Garden commercial guitar on it, maybe tomorrow.

Its hard, i’m not a Kings Of Convenience bandwagon fan, i’m a true Erlend fan and this just throws a few things off but not in a bad way. For the record, I enjoy how everything else meshes, that synth is actually refreshing, the flute with the bassline nails some classy early light disco that i’m a fan of. But the ukelele sounding thing when its up front, i’m just not feeling. What are your thoughts? and don’t say “why those shoes?” because I already said it.

Sebastião Salgado

Posted by Navis

Perhaps I’m a little late on the Sebastião Salgado bandwagon but I’m really glad I jumped on. Sebastião Salgado is a veteran documentary / photojournalism photographer from Brazil. I believe most of the shots above were shot with a Leica M7 with mostly Kodak’s T-Max 400 film. I’ve also read that Mr. Salgado has switched to digital format in recent years. Either way, his photographs floored me. I was at Samy’s Camera here in Los Angeles and they had his book Genesis on display. I could have sat and viewed that book for days. Each image had me staring at it for a good length of time. Salgado’s work is the kind of work that makes me want to quit photography entirely because it’s just too good.

I could go on and on about his work but go ahead and do your own research on Sebastião Salgado.

Alexander Kopatz is a biologist and wildlife researcher from Svanvik, Norway, who I’ve been following for sometime now through his blog, GO 70° NORTH. I love the way his nostalgic and subtle tones match the stark and expansive landscapes he works in. Highly recommended that you follow him on his blog or updates through his Facebook and Instagram.
