Photojournalist Max Desfor Dies at 104
Max Desfor, a former Associated Press (AP) photographer, the ex-photo editor of US News & World Report, passed away on 19 February in Maryland, USA, due to complications from a stroke. He was 104 years old. Desfor began his career as a messenger and darkroom assistant with AP, in 1933. In June 1950, he volunteered to report on the Korean War, when the North invaded the South. He was awarded the Pulitzer prize for his photograph that showed of hundreds of Korean war refugees, crossing the destroyed Taedong river bridge, as they looked for security from Chinese troops (1950). Later, during World War II, in August 1945, he photographed the bomber Enola Gay, after the B-29 arrived in Tinian. In an Instagram post following his death, fellow photojournalist David Hume Kennerly, had this to say about Desfor... “Max was a photographer’s photographer: Brave. Intrepid. A brilliant newsman. He had a great run.”
Maganbhai Patel, Known for his Studio Portraits, Passes Away
Maganbhai Patel passed away on 11 February in England. He was 95. He arrived in Coventry, from India, in 1951, and spent his initial years in shared housing, where he mingled with other immigrants. He found work at General Electric, where he was a member of their photographic society. Having already dabbled in photography when he was in India, Patel took photography classes in England. It was during this time that he began receiving assignments to photograph weddings and other events. Eventually, he quit his job to pursue photography full-time. Soon, he opened his own studio, close to home, where he photographed anybody who came in looking to have a portrait made of themselves. These individuals were mostly immigrants like him, hoping to get a passport picture made or to send photographs back home. At 94, his work came into the limelight, when his daughter showcased his work in a local exhibition group. “His work is of huge signifi cance not just for Coventry but the UK because it’s a window into the lives of people as they arrived here and the image they wanted to send home,” says Jason Tilley, curator of Photo Archive Miners.
Fujifi lm Launches the X-H1, its Latest Hybrid Flagship
The Fujifi lm X-H1 is the newest edition to the company’s popular X-series line-up. It features a 24MP X Trans sensor that is identical to the X-T2. It features 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (rated at 5EV), a 3.69M-dot OLED viewfi nder, a 3-inch touch sensitive rear LCD with two-axis tilt, and an ISO range of 200-12,800 (can be extended to 100-51,200). Regardless of the similar sensor and processor, Fujifi lm claims the camera displays enhanced video performance, and a better AF system, which can focus in low light conditions and with smaller apertures. X-H1 is the fi rst camera in the X-series to include the ETERNA fi lm simulation mode for shooting movies. It can shoot UHD 4K at up to 30p, DCI 4K capture at 23.97p and 24p, and can record F-Log footage internally. The enhanced compression option allows one to record video at up to 200 Mbps. Fujifi lm has also introduced a Movie Silent Control mode, that allows to switch between video and photography.
Egyptian Photojournalist Faces Death Penalty
Mahmoud Abu Zeid, alias Shawkan, is an Egyptian photojournalist who was apprehended on August 14th, 2013, while covering the anti-government demonstration in Cairo. He was assigned by Demotix–a British photo agency–to report on the clashes between the army, and the supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi, which took place in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. Zeid, along with more than 700 people, has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and membership with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian prosecutors have appealed for ‘maximum penalty’, that is death by hanging for all the accused. He was held without any trial or charges till March 2016. The UN Working Group considers his imprisonment as arbitrary, and they have also demanded for his immediate release.
