Ten of Australia’s finest contemporary photographers have been invited to explore their creativity using Fujifilm’s recently developed, compact new generation Finepix X100 digital camera. John Ogden, Max Pam, Narelle Autio, Lee Grant, Heidi Smith, Jack Picone, Louise Whelan, Marian Drew, Brad Rimmer and Tim Page have each explored their personal visions using the Fujifilm Finepix X100. These acclaimed ten photographers provide the perfect test for Fujifilm’s innovative, state of the art digital camera. In creating the Finepix X100, Fujifilm embraced photography’s traditions while creating a picture taking instrument departing completely from today’s increasingly predictable digital cameras. At first glance, the elegant Finepix X100 resembles the great rangefinder film cameras used by such pioneers of the art of photography in the mid 20th Century as Henri Cartier-Bresson, but with its unique imaging sensor, specially created lens and hybrid optical/digital viewfinder the X100 is designed to surpass the legendary responsiveness of rangefinder film cameras, The beautifully reproduced photographs in this book reflect Ten Australian Photographers and their visionary responses to using a remarkable 21st Century camera that is already being labelled ‘retro-futurist.’.
