My good friends at Photo Village, who supply most of my Leica gear, launched a new site called Camera Chronicle.  To celebrate their launch I wrote an article that looks at the influence of a camera called the Calypso.  It was developed in collaboration with Jacques Cousteau, which explains why the camera was named after his boat.

If you are interested in writing an article or publishing a body of work on Camera Chronicle, I will be playing an advisory role for the site.  So let me know and I can keep an eye out for your submission.  In the mean time enjoy the article:

 “The First Underwater Camera: Jacques Cousteau here.”

And you guys already know this, but if you like it, do the social media thing. Share it around and give it a like!

On the block for tomorrow

Today, I am off to Switzerland for a few days.  The next article What did Japanese art do to photography: Everyday Street, will be published tomorrow from the land of many mountains.
