In your bag number 158, Alex Coghe
Todays bag is a redux. JCH has featured Alex before as number 24, but he is back, and with a different bag. Lets see how things have changed.

My name is Alex Coghe, an Italian Street Photographer currently based on Mexico City. I am photoeditor for Hyde Park Photography magazine, and i am giving Street Photography workshops in italian, english and spanish, also through skype. When I do street photography require compactness, portability and inconspicuous. So for my photowalks in the streets of Mexico I used to go light.

Retrospective 5 by Think Tank Photo is perfect for me: no visible brand and a vintage look, you don’t think there are cameras inside.

Currently I am engaged in several photo projects and this is the equipment I’m using:

– Panasonic Lumix LX3: I have it for three years now. Still a great point & shot.
– Leica Leather Case: for the LX3. Probably the most fashionable object of my gear.
– Yashica Electro 35 GSN: i love this rangefinder. Aperture priority system, good sensations in the hand.
– Reality Remade: my project book, something to show people if I stop talking to them.
– Olympus E-P1 with Panasonic 14mm f/2.5: for me still a great camera that I know perfectly. Now i am using the pancake of Panasonic because i think is a great lens, wider than the kit lens of Olympus.
– Spare battery of Lumix LX3: naturally I also carry with me an extra battery for Olympus.
– Memory cards: only for safe. Even when I’m out all day, hard to get to consume a card of 4 GB
– ColorPlus 200: currently i am working to an urban landscape project, so 200 ISO is good!
– A fistful of business cards
