10th Issue Of Centrefold Magazine Shot Entirely On Lumia 1020



We have seen the Nokia Lumia 1020 do some impressive feats, such as being used to photograph a wedding. But bi-annual fashion magazine Centrefold has taken it a step further, using the 41 megapixel smartphone to shoot the 10th issue of the publication cover to cover.

Nokia Conversations tells us:

In 2003, Andrew G Hobbs founded a magazine that allowed world-renowned photographers to showcase their work in an original, large-format approach that put the picture at the heart of the story.

Centrefold is a bi-annual, A2 (420 x 594mm) folding poster publication that exhibits established and emerging artists in the fashion, art and design industries.

For its tenth ‘Beyond’ issue, Centrefold has pushed the boundaries of innovation once more; the entire magazine was shot with a Nokia Lumia 1020.

Photographer Tung Walsh, who photographed top-model, Lily McMenamy, in Paris for the issue, said:

“I was blown away by the amount of detail I was getting. It was really incredible that a phone could produce these results, I think also the shots became more intimate, shooting in a more gung-ho approach!”

Many of us here at Conversations have edited national magazines, so the concept of using a smartphone as the sole photographic source is quite exceptional and testament to the Lumia 1020’s imaging prowess.

To celebrate the collaboration between Nokia and Centrefold an exhibition will be held in London featuring the photographs, as well as the magazine publishing limited edition issues.

While very impressive, it is not hugely surprising that the Lumia 1020 was used to shoot a fashion magazine, it’s camera is the finest yet seen on any smartphone and has produced some breath-taking pictures.
