I am planning, plotting and possibly scheming. I have two and a half months to implement my plan. I must not fail. Blog land depends on me. I need your help.
It is a late summer evening and quite humid as I go for an evening walk in Copenhagen. The hypnotic rhythm of walking calms my thoughts, the air feels summery warm and my ipod is wired to my brain. Suddenly a terribly bright light blinds me. I am approaching an office with a somewhat familiar logo. Whom do I know again who goes on and on about this company and their digital backs? Who will surely never stop boasting of this megapixel wonder every second in Papua New Guinea. Who can it be? I want to turn away but cannot. I stare at the logo, forever lost in time and the surely billions of pixels that make up the logo. Yet something is missing. The image may consist of many pixels but it is not whole. It is not complete. They are confusing a detailed image with a good image.
What is missing? My name of course! I am the best landscape photographer in Denmark and I do not get sponsored with as much as a Phase One beer bottle opener (I am sure they have plenty, their offices are close to Carlsberg). I am a nomad photographer and could test the Phase One in all conditions around the world. I am the upcoming star of Further and Further. Indeed this is better:
Flemming Bo Jensen, a Phase One ambassador
I need your help dear reader. Surprisingly just being me has not brought Phase One around knocking on my door (perhaps because I have no door). What angle should I pursue to become a Phase One ambassador and bag a free camera for my Nomad Part II adventure? The only way to beat the Fletcher with his Phase One in PNG is to have my own Phase One but for free! The best suggestion wins a Phase One bottle opener and a priceless image of one Christian Fletcher in PNG giving my free Phase One the evil eye.
Apologies for this inside joke, it may not make much sense to most readers. Phase One produce, among other things, a Phase One medium format camera with a 65 megapixel back. A camera used by the likes of Peter Eastway and Joey L and one Christian Fletcher (something us poor blog readers have had to hear about till our ears fell off. Well, eyes really).
Incidentally, I find it very fitting that I shot these images of the office of many pixels on a very crappy camera phone.
