Our cover contributor for this month is Jared Wood, who, in his interview with Alison Conklin, explains how his practice of street photography has had an impact on the way he shoots weddings and shares his experience of making his dream come in opening up a photography studio.
Take Kayo brings us his latest instalment of Take’s Corner, where he takes a closer look at the next generation sensor for the X Series, a stack layer back illuminated X-Trans CMOS sensor, which was announced for a 2022 release at the X Summit Prime back in September. Christopher Andreou, meanwhile, shares with us his very relatable fears of approaching strangers while out doing street photography, as well as his experiences in confronting and overcoming them, the result of which is his incredible street portraits.
Next up is Rob Yaskovic with a beautiful photo essay that documents his daily commute in New Jersey, while Marc Sadowski, host of our FujiLove podcast, describes how some chance fog after a hurricane boosted his creativity and afforded him an opportunity for improving his photographic eye.
Our first interview for this month is with Bess Adler, who shares with us her experience as a photojournalist, giving some personal insight into some of the compelling stories she’s covered over her career. Next up is our monthly ‘From the Feed’ feature, where we’re sharing four popular images from #myfujilove on Instagram, posted by Hans Brasz, Will Stephens, Ryan Jenkins and Baakong (Park Hongbin). Continuing her series on travel photography is Raisa Zwart, who shares a bit about the beauty of Italy, as well as discussing our wider impact and responsibilities as photographers. Rounding off our February issue, Ibarionex Perello continues his series on rediscovering photography with a look at how shooting in a new city and a chance photo opportunity helped to remind him of his basic principles of the art and practice of photography.
