Messenger Bag Roundup Part 4 : Tenba Messenger DNA 13

Let’s have a look at the 4th and final messenger bag in the round-up.
The only way to truly review these bags is to use them, and that takes time.
And I use them in different circumstances, to see how the physicality works under real world conditions.

This bag, the Tenba DNA 13 has a ton of the right design elements, containing features spread over all of the rest of the market, making it a right priced, great pick, no matter what the occasion. Combining some of my favorite features, this is fast becoming the day-to-day bag, especially when a laptop is required.

Fuji X-T2 : Hands On First Look

Foto-Care in NYC held a special event on 7/28, with the brand new Fuji X-T2.
Only operational unit in NYC. I brought along an X-T1, for comparison, with a 56 1.2. There were a few of us waiting to handle the one unit, so didn’t have a ton of time.
Did shoot some frames, see below, but Lightroom cannot read the RAF (RAW at this time), so I’ll post a JPeg right out of the camera with no adjustments.
In the images below, the X-T1 is on the left,with 35mm, and the X-T2 on the right, with 56mm. The X-T2 also comes with an Extended eye-cup.

The New ICP : Still the house that Capa built?

The legacy of social consciousness through photography was a cornerstone of ICP, created by Cornell Capa in NYC.
Once housed way upper East Side in a mansion, then moved to mid-town, and now, its new iteration is right on one of the most historic streets in NYC: Bowery!

So, what’s different? Well, a lot, and yet the DNA is the same.
From the outside, you can see the floor to ceiling glass walls with an inviting cafe as soon as you go through the door.

Diane Arbus: In the Beginning – Met Breuer Reveals Never Seen Photographs

The images of Diane Arbus are forever burned into my brain.
Her Aperture Monograph was a gift in 1972, and as she had taken her own life a year before, the photographs of those on the fringes, were forever perceived as a deeper insight into this artist’s mind.

How did that complex photographic journey begin for her? After she and her husband had a successful commercial photography business, she left it and started on the revelatory road that created the work the world is now familiar with.
