Robert Capa was there, man

There are now 125 previously unpublished photos by Robert Capa on display at the International Center of Photography in New York. He is mostly known for his monochrome photojournalism, and his photographs of the liberation of Paris are especially moving.

The ICP has over 4,000 new transparencies (who knew he shot so much in color!) in their collection, so I suspect more will come in all good time.

Zack Arias: Life Without DSLRS (Fuji X100s Follow-up)

Zack Arias writes more about his experiences after ditching the DSLRs and shooting Fuji.

It’s akin to artists moving into a bad part of town because the rent is affordable. Then they make that bad part of town cool. Then people start pouring in and shops and restaurants open up. Rent goes up to the point that the people who made that place cool can no longer afford to live there and they have to go find a new place to live. Fuji is that new place to live.
β€” Zack Arias


a Period of Juvenile Prosperity

When asked about his approach to travel and photography Brodie has said: sometimes I take a train the wrong way or…whatever happens a photo will come out of it, so it doesn’t really matter where I end up.

At 17 Mike Brodie hopped his first train close to his home in Pensacola, FL thinking he would visit a friend in Mobile, AL. Instead the train went in the opposite direction to Jacksonville, FL. Days later, Brodie rode the same train home, arriving back where he started. Nonetheless, it sparked something and Brodie began to wander across the U.S. by any means that were free β€” walking, hitchhiking and train hopping. Shortly after, Brodie found a Polaroid camera stuffed behind a carseat. With no training in photography and coke-bottle glasses, the instant camera was an opening for Brodie to document his experiences. As a way of staying in touch with his transient community,Brodie shared his pictures on various websites gaining the moniker The Polaroid Kidd [sic].
