The high performance flash emits the ideal amount of the light finely adjusted for the distance to the subject and ambient brightness. It helps to optimize the exposure.

Born in New York in 1984, John Messinger earned an undergraduate degree in photojournalism and art history from Boston University and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Messinger was awarded the Aaron Siskind Memorial Scholarship to attend the School of Visual Arts for a Master in Fine Arts, under the tutelage of Elinor Carucci.
Messinger’s work has been featured by W Magazine and Photograph Magazine, and was recently selected by Artfetch as one of “The Top Ten Digital Artists Defining The Medium.” He’s worked as a freelance photographer for W Magazine, Manhattan Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal. He recently visited the University of Tennessee’s School of Art as a visiting artist and lecturer. His works have been exhibited by Tripoli Gallery (2015), Firestone Gallery (2013) The Watermill Center (2012), McNeil Art Group (2010), and Elaine Benson Gallery (2004). His images have also appeared in the pages of The New York Times Magazine and The Boston Globe. His works can be found in permanent collections such as the KPMG Collection, The Watermill Center Collection, and The Ogden Museum.
John Messinger is a conceptual artist, photographer, and educator who works and lives between New York and Los Angeles. His current series combines elements of photography and tapestry, creating large-scale, 3-dimensional mixed media artworks. These works consist of thousands of individual Fujifilm instant photographs created by the photographing of large computer monitors, then assembled together to create large-scale, one-of-a-kind photographic tapestries that examine the proliferation and ubiquity of the photograph in the digital age.
Inspired by the notions of singularity, and the photograph as construction, Messinger combines hundreds of varying images and transforms them into a single experience. His work fuses indexical and abstract imagery to question the notion of photographer as curator, simultaneously blurring the lines between analog and digital photography, painting and photography.
Theorist Lyle Rexer writes of Messinger's work, "In the contemporary emblem, a man sits in front of a computer screen, prepared to merge with the images gathering there, but separated from them by the camera he holds, an instant camera, which he snaps compulsively, generating a mounting pile of paper and chemical images, a "real" alternative to the virtual world that threatens to engulf him."
Fujifilm’s presentation of Messinger's work features three large-scale, 3-dimensional, photographic objects, composed of hundreds of Fujifilm instant photographs. Each piece captures the collective imagery of a large computer monitor image, using a Fujifilm Mini Instax camera. The resulting photographs are arranged together, edge-to-edge, using acid-free tape. Because an instant photograph is ultimately a positive photograph without an accompanying negative, each of these works is an irreproducible 1 of-a-kind object. Messinger meticulously captures selected aspects of the image displayed on the screen to later recompose individual photographs into a larger composition. Thus, Messinger conducts the analogue and digital clash into a resounding visual harmony.
Raised in the warm suburbs of California's Bay Area, Nathan was exposed to photography at a young age via his passions for music and skateboarding. He has continued to keep a youthful perspective on his surroundings ever since shooting for the likes of many commercial clients such as Louis Vuitton, Nike, Adidas and BMW.
Nathan lives and works in New York City.
I think there will forever be a place for instant film. The instant gratification and unique look of the images are something that was sorely missed for me in the last years of shooting digital. Having the opportunity to carry this little gem around and give my subjects an image on the spot is priceless and I look forward to continuing to shoot with it and share even more!
Nicolas Maloof was born in Massachusetts, and raised in the Berkshires. He currently lives in New York City. The quiet of rural life and travel inform his photographs. Nicolas has worked as a printmaker, an artist assistant (mixing paint and holding brushes) and as a commercial photographer. If he is not traveling to shoot editorial and advertising images, he picks away at zinc and copper plates, draws, and makes photographs.
I love working with the Instax Mini 90 because it's simplicity allows to me to focus on capturing my experience. It brings me back to my first experiences as a child shooting pictures of my life. To this day there is nothing as fun as hoping in a car to drive around taking pictures. It is still a magical experience for me to see the pictures come to life in printed form.
I was born and raised in rural Oklahoma, but never shied away from traveling to Europe to see my father when I was a child. Being exposed to a mix of cultures at an early age allowed me to experience a vast spectrum of beauty. The outcome results in the creation of unique scenes that are greatly inspired by a wide range or day-to-day life experiences along with classic paintings, sculptures, etc. My goal as a photographer is to always evoke emotion and carry a narrative with in the still image.
I have a wonderful time using the Instax mini 90 and still continue to find wonderful ways to fine tune the cameras features to make each picture unique. For instance . . . I've found that you can control the flash and also achieve a warm tone to the image similar to a CTO gel by holding your finger partially over the flash while shooting... fun right! I also enjoy the sleek new body, and feel that the Leica inspired design brings a level of sincerity to the camera that is much deserved.
Thayer has been splitting her time between Brooklyn and San Francisco the past few years. When not in Williamsburg at her lofty space, you can find her in SF at her modern home on the leafy streets of Bernal Hill with the hot pink front door. Surfing in Bolinas on the weekends and hanging with her scruffy terrier, Scout.
She shoots and directs for the likes of Apple, Target, and Levis. Her work is inspired by sincerity and playfulness. Capturing fun, beauty and happiness in the everyday.
A Connecticut native who moved West, she finds inspiration in the western landscape in the far reaches of Northern California. Taking pictures of it’s every nook. Seeking out hot springs and the pink fog at sunset.
Her lifestyle work celebrates the real stories of those that find themselves in front of her lens. Her energy when shooting is always open, fun & caring. Boundless when she has a shot list as long as her arm, quiet when on a farm, filming crafters in their studios in Vancouver. Adaptable and always filled with easy going charm.
With the recent poster/zine “Take Me to the Sea” in collaboration with the Lower East Side gallery, Ed Varie, her personal work is sexy, nostalgic and fresh. She is driven by color, texture and patterns in the landscape from her travels.
Her bags are rarely unpacked. She is often on her way to South America, Asia, Mexico or Big Sur; where she spends her free time. Thayer is a local to SF, LA and NY..
I have such a crush on my Instax Mini90!
I love how portable it is, I travel non-stop and I can throw it in my bag and take it with me wherever I go. I am an instant gratification girl so getting to snap pics, see them instantly and tangible makes me crazy happy. I love being able to fill a bowl on my table with Instax images. Whenever people come over, it’s always a fun thing for everyone to browse through and interact with vs. images stuck in your phone or on your computer. It allows conversation and a tactile experience I loved about print vs. digital.
