As a photographer, the camera is a tool second only to my body. Hence the way I the camera has to resonate with the way I move and photograph, in order to make my work easier and also respond with speed.  I’m a huge fan of the X-Pro2 and X-T2, both for the way their bodies have been constructed with touches of nostalgia, and how they are so silent and obscured when I’m working on the streets. They are also lightweight and perfect to travel with. It frees me from some of the weight of prime lenses which I love using.
