19th Annual Friends of Friends Photography Auction - Benefit for Children's Healthcare in Asia

During a series of photography trips to Cambodia's Angkor Wat monuments, internationally acclaimed photographer Kenro Izu was deeply affected by his encounters with often ill, malnournished, and disfigured children. As a symbol of his gratitude for the profund artistic inspiration he received from Cambodia's historical treasures, Izu committed himself to building a pediatric hospital to provide desperately needed healthcare for its children…its future. 

Friends Without A Border (Friends), a non-profit organization, was founded by Izu in 1996 to build and manage Angkor Hospital for Children in Cambodia. In 2013, Friends launched a new initiative to extend the reach of the mission to the children of Lao PDR by building and establishing Lao Friends Hospital for Children; which opened in February 2015. 

Since inception, the art community has been a vital source of support for Friends. An integral part of this relationship has been the Friends of Friends Photography Auction, first held in 1997. In the years since, nearly one thousand artists, their representatives, and collectors have generously donated their work to the auction, the proceeds from which directly support the mission of Friends to provide quality healthcare to children in Southeast Asia. During the past sixteen years the auction has raised more than $2.5 million, including $170,000 in 2015. With your help we hope this year's event will continue and build on that success.

There will be both live and silent auctions, including work from Bruce Davidson, Aaron Siskind, Hiromitsu Morimoto, and many more.  

The Auction is on Tuesday, October 4th from 5 - 6 pm for the guided walk through and 6 - 8:30 pm for the auction and reception.

New Medium Format Digital Camera System from Fujifilm Announced at Photokina

"FUJIFILM GFX 50S will give professional photographers the most extraordinary image quality in the history of Fujifilm" 

Due to high demand from the professional photographer community, Fujifilm will be launching the GFX Digital Medium Format System in early 2017.  The FUJIFILM GFX 50S mirrorless digital camera will feature the new FUJIFILM G Format 43.8 x32.9mm sensor with an astonishing 51.4MP resolution and six FUJINON GF Lenses that will be introduced sequentially in early 2017.

Since the X-Series was launched, many asked when they could get the color reproduction quality of these cameras in a larger format to better capture texture and detail.  This is their answer.  

"The FUJIFILM GFX 50S will feature a detachable electronic viewfinder, which users can remove when using an external monitor or wanting to make the system even lighter. In addition, an optional adapter makes it possible to fit the EVF at any angle, giving greater freedom in the choice of shooting angle. Other optional accessories that will be available at launch include the Vertical Battery Grip, which enhances functionality when shooting in the portrait orientation. The camera also supports tethered shooting, which has become an essential part of the professional photographers’ workflow, and will be compatible with various RAW conversion application software."
