Danny Zapalac’s Traveling Lifestyle

Traveling is in Danny Zapalac’s blood. When Soviet tanks rolled into Czechoslovakia in 1968, his parents fled west. Thirty-nine years ago, Zapalac was born in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, New York. Five years later his parents moved again, this time to East Long Beach, California, where he was raised.

Attending college locally, Zapalac went to Long Beach State University, and graduated with an International Business degree. After graduation, he worked at a snowboard shop. He eventually realized it wasn’t for him, and, at 26, he picked up a camera for the first time and fell in love with photography.

Fast Company Covers Rachel Sussman

We published a detailed profile of Rachel Sussman over a year ago. Since that time, she hasn’t slowed her extraordinary trips to chronicle our planet’s oldest living things. Along with a TED talk and a CNN feature, among other stories, the latest in the media coverage Sussman has enjoyed is a recent featured article at Fast Company.

In the Fast Company story, Sussman gives a recap of her ongoing project and points out her Mamiya 7 II and Fujifilm Pro Pack among the standard gear she carries with her on expeditions. We can’t wait until this project is complete. One woman traveling the globe to document what has been here longer than any of us, and still quite alive, is one of the most exciting photography projects we’ve heard of in a long time. Go, Rachel!
