    How dare police officers justifiably lay down the law on worthless violent thugs.

  • Juan

    x-pro2 ?

    • Didiergm

      Unlikely for an XPRO1 Seems too small – I’d say X-E1 or 2
      And if it was an XPRO2 he would probably be breaching half a dozen NDAs

      • Joseph Moccia

        XE1 or XE2, square viewfinder.

        • MJr

          3 stops exposure comp so X-E2, with 27mm.

  • nwcs

    I wonder if he used a film simulation? After all, we have been told recently that no professional uses them and it’s the same as Instagram.

    • Yeah VSCO reported that he used one of their film preset

  • marc in calgary

    How about a photo of some of the victims of Mr. Gray selling illicid drugs? also, Mr. Gray seems to have had some heroin in him when he died as a result of hurling himself against the interior of the police van, which (the heroin) may help explain how he didn’t feel his body reacting to the pain he was trying to inflict upon himself.

      I do not believe this is the right place to start a social or political debate however interesting it might be. There are plenty of other fora on the internet to have such a conversation.

  • What kind of wrist strap is that?

  • Sinjun

    Just out of curiosity, which X series camera was used?

    • Looks like a X100T on the picture

      • Patrick

        it’s the X-E2

  • Chris

    Sometimes I think it thanks to Fuji’s AF

  • Congratulations to Devin Allen. Irrespective of which camera and strap was used, he has a cover of Time magazine under his belt. That immediately promotes him to Charlie Big Potatoes status in the photojournalistic world.

    More importantly, if you can distance yourself from the politics surrounding the event (and this is understandably difficult for some), he took a powerful set of images that any news tog would be proud of.

    The fact he did this with a Fuji is very much a secondary concern, but it highlights the nonsense spouted by those who seem determined to twist every way to prove their choice of camera is the One True Path.

    And as an amateur photographer, if he wants a career in photojournalism, Devin Allen just got the best tear-sheet on the planet.

  • Drb

    you can tell it is fuji, not in focus.
    (from a fuji owner)

  • Dericka Soso

    Wow, such a powerful image. It seems Instagram wipes the exif data; I would love to know what settings he used.

  • Tami Howard

    As a recovering f/64 addict, I can now say that a photo does not always have to be tack sharp to be compelling.

  • andrenyrk

    Hah – correct, with another cam he might have gotten the fleeing guy in the forefront sharp, BUT turns out the photo is much more powerful with the cops in formation tack sharp – Happy coincidence then ;D
