Humans of New York

The Road Travel CrewComment

One of our favorite blogs to check out is Humans of New York.  Photographer Brandon Stanton had a goal of taking pictures of 10,000 different people on the streets of New York City.  Brandon began interviewing his subjects along the way and the project began to take off.  It's Brandon's ability to connect with his subjects in such a deep fashion and tell their story in a few sentences that made his project magic.  Humans of New York has a blog, Facebook, Instagram, a physical book and we're sure more to come.

Brandon is currently in South American taking portraits in the streets and getting people to open up about their lives.  It's worth your time to take a look.

Leica Cameras is to introduce a special M-P (Typ 240) kit that has been designed by the artist Rolf Sachs. The bundle will include a Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens and SF40 flash unit, and the body will be covered in the type of rubber usually reserved for table tennis bats. The red rubber will have the raised pips that table tennis players use to spin and control the ball, which Leica suggests will give the camera sure handling – and the nickname M-P ‘Grip’.Leica is to introduce a special M-P (Typ 240) kit that has been designed by the artist Rolf Sachs.
