Our special guest this week is Xyza Cruz Bacani.
This week’s talking points include professionals moving into ‘survival mode’ for the winter; how can we help each other?
What lens and camera combo to use for on-set photography, should I separate my Instagram out for different genres or include everything on my one grid, going from Leica to a Fujifilm X-Pro; what should I expect and other topics.

Today’s guest is Xyza Cruz Bacani
Our special guest this week is Xyza Cruz Bacani, Fujifilm X-Photographer, Magnum Foundation Fellow and previously awarded one of the BBC’s Top 100 Women of the World.
We spoke about her book, We are Like Air, early on in the Fujicast history.
Kev’s Book of the Week In the Limelight: The Visual Ecstasy of NYC Nightlife in the 90s: The Visual Ecstasy of NYC Club by Steve Eichner
Eichner was a fixture of 1990s New York City nightlife and served as both its official and unofficial photographer in an era before cellphones and selfies. In this book, readers go beyond the velvet ropes and into the spaces that witnessed some of the decade’s most incredible and sought-after parties. Previously unpublished, these intoxicating full-coluor photographs capture the over-the- top costumes, non-stop dancing, glitter, confetti, sex, drugs, and music that made 90s New York unlike any other place. Celebrities abound, from Leonardo DiCaprio, Dennis Hopper, and Tupac to Joan Rivers, Michael Musto, and Donald Trump. Eichner takes you to many of the city’s hot spots, including the Limelight, the Tunnel, Webster Hall, Club Expo, and Club USA. Texts by famous club owner Peter Gatien and BuzzFeed photo essay editor Gabriel H. Sanchez offer a historic and cultural perspective on an era when New York City was more affordable and every night saw artists, bankers, drag queens, musicians, and poets reveling together.
