In this update we wanted to start sharing the work of our beta users. Darwin is currently in the U.S. Army – stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany. His work covers the day-to-day operations on base in Wiesbaden and the surrounding area in Western Germany.
When Darwin first contacted us, we were drawn to his intimate portrayal of army life in Wiesbaden, Germany. Before joining the army, Darwin lived in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
Recalling his younger days – he and his buddies would skip school taking the Bonanza bus from Kennedy Plaza bus station in Providence to get to Boston. There they would skate through the financial district and take the metro to explore the city, or even just chill at the aquarium all day.
His care free spirit is shown through his work, and his love of photography. Documenting life as it plays out. Darwin currently shoots film Leica with a 50mm Summicron Type 3 lens. We sent Darwin a TAAB Mini to test out and look forward to sharing his experience with our community.
When we designed TAAB, we wanted to choose a material that would withstand the most rugged use. Molded out of high grade Neoprene, TAAB is resistant to harsh chemicals, water, and sun exposure. We are excited to see beta users from all walks of life testing the durability of TAAB.
