Magnum Photographer Alex Majoli is an award-winning photographer whose professional works have been featured in publications such as Newsweek, The New York Times Magazine, and Vanity Fair. Recently he was named Magazine Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association for his images of the war in Iraq and of daily life in China, and was also the recipient of the Overseas Press Club’s prestigious Feature Photography Award for his coverage of the war in the Congo. All of the images submitted for both awards were taken with the Olympus C-5050 Zoom.
In a profession where speed is critical, durability is necessary, and performance can never be in doubt, Alex Majoli, a professional photographer since 1987, prefers Olympus equipment above all others. “In my work the quality of the image files is of paramount importance,” said Alex. “There is great consistency to the Olympus image, at the center and at the edges. The files are beautiful and the color literally pops.” Additionally, the great ergonomic design and cutting-edge technology inherent to each Olympus product enables even greater freedom and assurance he captures the shots he covets.
