6 great photographers shoot with the X-Series

Share

William Eggleston, Nan Goldin, Ryan McGinley, Martin Parr, Terry Richardson, and Stephen Shore shoot with the X-Series for a show at Aperture Gallery simply called “Photography”. Look at the images here. (thanks for the link Adam).

It was Eggleston’s first time ever shooting digital!

“The exhibition consists of approximately 25 new prints that are reflective of each photographer’s distinctive aesthetic, from William Eggleston’s iconic Americana; Stephen Shore’s intensive snapshot documentation; Nan Goldin’s poetic self-reflection; Martin Parr’s whimsical observations of contemporary living; Terry Richardson’s stark, blunt simplicity; and Ryan McGinley’s images of youth and beauty.”

Dean from Fujifilm X-series thoughts has already seen the shots and says that

“I could envisage several possibilities. Foremost in my mind was the possibility that it might simply be a cold and cynical ploy from a marketing department. Happily however, that was not the case. Clearly, all involved are benefiting from this. The photographers (presumably) get access to free equipment (and possibly more), and both sides of the party get exposure. But the whole deal had more of a mutual “this is exciting” feel to it, rather than cold calculation. I was quite taken by some of the photographs, and the whole day’s adventure was well worth the effort.”
