DAVID BOWIE IS


If you visit the Broadway-Lafayette station in NYC right now you will get a peek at some of Markus Klinko’s work, which is being featured as part of the DAVID BOWIE IS exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum.

Organized with unprecedented access to David Bowie’s personal archive, this exhibition explores the creative process of an artist whose sustained reinventions, innovative collaborations, and bold characterizations revolutionized the way we see music, inspiring people to shape their own identities while challenging social traditions. David Bowie is has been touring globally for the past five years and is taking its final bow at the Brooklyn Museum, providing an opportunity to view this one-of-a-kind material.

David Bowie is presents approximately 400 objects drawn primarily from the David Bowie Archive, including the artist’s original costumes, handwritten lyric sheets from famous songs, original album art, photographs, and videos, all tracing Bowie’s creative process from his teenage years in England through his last twenty years, when he resided in New York City. The archive is presented within an immersive, multimedia installation that includes continuous audio along with projected animation and video.

Highlights of the exhibition include more than 60 custom-made performance costumes, including six designed by Freddie Burretti for Ziggy Stardust / 1980 Floor Show and seven designed by Kansai Yamamoto for Aladdin Sane. There are 85 handwritten lyric sheets, including those from “Fame” and “Fashion”; drawings, including a sketch for the Young Americans album cover; and oil paintings, including two of musician Iggy Pop, all by Bowie. There are also more than 40 pioneering music videos, television clips, and filmed roles as well as a multimedia presentation of international tour footage with rare scenes from the legendary Diamond Dogs tour, filmed in Philadelphia. A custom audio mix made up of snippets of Bowie’s songs—produced by longtime collaborator Tony Visconti—is also featured.

David Bowie is is organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Markus’ work at the exhibit was shot using FUJIFILM PROVIA Film and his work with Bowie is some of his best. Markus also contributes to FujiAddict and to the larger world of photography.  We would like to congratulate him for being included in this eclectic collection.

Photokina 2018 Drama: Fujifilm Confirms Attendance


It seems there was some drama caused by rumors that vendors were dropping out of Photokina 2018, which turned out to be untrue. The noise must have gotten pretty bad because Photokina issued a press release confirming that all of the major camera makers would be in attendance. Of course, we knew Fujifilm would be in attendance because we expect to hear more about the Fujifilm X-T3 and GFX 50R at Photokina 2018.

Stay Tuned to FujiAddict for all the Photokina 2018 announcements and be sure to follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagramYouTube

Photokina 2018: high exhibitor demand

Five months prior to the start of the 35th edition of photokina on 26 September 2018, the organisers are expecting every single exhibitor space in the halls in Cologne to be filled. Leading companies of the industry like Arri, Canon, Cewe, DJI, Epson, Fujifilm, Kodak Alaris, Leica, Manfrotto, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Profoto, Sigma, Sony, Tamron and Zeiss have already secured their stands at the coming event. The application phase is also moving full speed ahead for photokina 2019.

“Last year we reached a series of important decisions affecting the future of photokina, and can now see that these decisions are already having a positive impact in 2018”, according to Christoph Werner, Vice President Koelnmesse. “We are pleased that many technology leaders have decided in favour of participation in photokina – in some cases extending beyond 2018.”

Photokina is also of great interest to young companies. With the Imaging Lab, a format was created that brings together start-ups, research institutions and the innovation departments of the technology leaders to jointly enable a look into the future of imaging.
