June 20, 2019

Valhalla, N.Y. – The Electronic Imaging Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation announces its collaboration with internationally acclaimed professional travel photographer Elia Locardi as he launches his new web series, Moments in Time, which premiered on June 18 on YouTube.

After a decade of sharing his photos with the world, Locardi is taking his Fujifilm cameras along for the journey and sharing all of the wonderful Moments in Time that are experienced between capturing those frames–the food, travel, culture, and connections with a worldwide creative community that have helped to inspire his work and life as a photographer.

“The show will focus on sharing unique inspirational experiences with the viewers in a variety of locations, while exploring our beautiful planet for photography,” according to Locardi. “The goal is to have the viewer come away with new knowledge, a passion for photography, and an enriching travel and cultural experience,” he said. Fujifilm collaborated with Locardi on this project by providing the cameras used to shoot the imagery featured in the series. “I’ve been using Fujifilm X Series Cameras since 2014, from the X-T1 to now, the X-T3, with my primary gear now being the GFX System,” said Locardi. He has also hosted several speaking events and workshops around the world on behalf of Fujifilm.

“Fujifilm is committed to empowering photographers everywhere to tell stories through the medium of photography,” said Victor Ha, Director of Marketing for Fujifilm’s Electronic Imaging Division. “With a Fujifilm digital camera in hand, you can witness a moment, capture it, and actively contribute to the collective narrative that is driving our brand's legacy  – and that’s exactly what Elia is doing with Moments in Time. We’re thrilled to be a part of this project and can’t wait to see what stories he will continue to uncover and tell through the lenses of our cameras,” he said.

Season one of the Moments in Time series took Locardi to Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Italy and Spain. Throughout the journey he was able to interview, collaborate, and learn from dozens of amazing local experts, artists, and photographers from all over the world. Fujifilm cameras were always on hand to capture every unique moment in time along the way.
