Editor Obsession: Nikon FE

Nikon FE

I bought my Nikon FE in 1983, after months of careful shopping and comparing and saving of money. I was 14. I had never owned an object I loved as much as this one: it was all black, a beautifully utilitarian piece of machine-tooled aluminum and glass. That summer, my family went on vacation to the Loire Valley, and I took many hundreds of photographs of castles, and a few of my parents and brother, too. The strange thing is not that I still love this camera, though of course I do, but that I still use it. Today it’s technically an antique, but the FE is notoriously rugged, hailed by professionals back in the day for its ability to operate in extreme conditions. Needless to say, the photographs, too, seem more rugged than any JPEG. I pile them in a shoebox—tangible, permanent records, far from the iCloud ether.

Video: Europe at Night

NIGHTVISION from Luke Shepard on Vimeo.

A couple of years back I shared a dreamy video of Paris by photographer Luke Shepard on this blog.

He recently released a new video, and dare I say, it's even better.

Luke traveled to 36 cities in 21 countries across Europe and shot more than 20,000 photographs to create this film called Nightvision. He describes it as a "celebration of the brilliant and diverse architecture found across Europe."

See it for yourself.
