Big names lined up for Photokina 2014

Photokina, the world’s biggest imaging exhibition, is going to feature some of photography’s biggest names thanks to Fujifilm.

The show takes place in Cologne from Tuesday 16th to Sunday 21st September 2014 and we’ve lined up 23 Fujifilm X-Photographers from across the globe to talk or demo on our stand about a wide range of photography subjects.

Here’s a sneak peak at just three of the photographers that will be presenting at Photokina this year. The rest will be announced on our Fujifilm-X Photokina 2014 website on the 23rd August 2014.

David will be discussing his recent switch from DSLR to CSC thanks to the Fujifilm X-T1

Back in March of this year, he discovered the Fujifilm X-T1. At the time he thought it would prove to be a capable casual camera, one he could use when he wasn’t lugging around his DSLR and a large bag of lenses, but he didn’t think I’d be using it for anything serious.

Six months later, having explored his preconceptions in a lot more detail, he now struggles to come up with a reason to take my DSLR out of its bag as the X-T1 and Fujifilm system not only deliver the performance and quality he needs for his work, they provide a range of additional benefits he hadn’t anticipated. In this talk he’ll explore these strengths and benefits in more detail.

Only as recently as November 2009, Alex picked up a camera… Never one for taking things slowly, only mere months into this new obsession, he was already exhibiting a selection from his documentary work ‘Almost Famous’ at a Mayfair Gallery. More recently Alex’s images headlined the well attended ‘Feeling Good’ exhibition for the David Lynch Foundation at Getty Images Gallery in London during Art Month of October 2013, whilst simultaneously 2 other shoots were showing in New York galleries.

Alex has become recognised for his ‘Quirky, often Edgy’ Children’s campaigns, and incorporating a ‘raw / street / documentary’ style to his fashion editorials. He will be talking about how he combines inspiration drawn from the masters of past and present and his passion for the genres of social documentary, specifically focussing on ‘the human condition’.
