I went to the Vision Conference on Friday 7th. I wanted to see Simon Norfolk talk about his latest project. I like the fact he is being so abstract about his take on War Photography. At Vision there was also Simon Roberts who talked about Motherland and he also talked about his latest project; We English.
I recorded Jacob Aue Sobol’s talk and Simon Norfolk’s as well. Both are small file sizes and can be found here. Sorry for the poor audio quality with Jacob’s, I haven’t got such software to clean it up.
The 5D mark II also made an appearance at Vision. Canon were an attendee and had on display 1 of only 3 5D mark II’s in the country. I was lucky enough to touch it :), but seriously while it holds nicely (prefer it with a battery grip), it has been remodeled slightly so the body isn’t a reuse from the first generation. Canon again were happy to confirm it is going to be released at the end of the month.
The Vision conference itself was promoted by the BJP and for £10 (£15) if you want your portfolio reviewed. It is excellent value for money, I’ll be going next year without a doubt.
