In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a Ukrianian/Russian photo collaboration, Sotheby's first eBay live auction of photographs, Daniel Gordon in San Francisco tonight and the fifth edition of a classic book on lighting.

  • In Photos That Echo Russia and Ukraine, James Estrin profiles a collaboration of Ukrainian and Russian photographers commemorating the first anniversary of the annexation of Crimea.
  • Tomorrow (yes, April Fool's Day), eBay and Sotheby's will launch the first of Sotheby's live auctions with the Photographs and New York sales. Sotheby's live auctions feature high-resolution images, hosted video, live streaming audio and video and "Museum View" transitions to bring the experience of walking through a museum or gallery to life in the online world. Participants, regardless of their location, will see the exact same item and current real-time bidding online and experience real-time bidding sensitive to the millisecond.
  • Pier 24 Photography will host a free lecture tonight by New York-based photographer Daniel Gordon at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. "Gordon sources images from the Internet, prints his findings on an inkjet printer and sculpts elaborate still lifes and portraits from these appropriated images. His temporary constructions are carefully lit and photographed with a large format camera before being dismantled."
  • Focal Press has published the fifth edition of Light Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting By Fil Hunter, Steven Biver and Paul Fuqua. The new edition includes a new chapter on setting up a studio, a revamped chapter on portraits, photo gear sources appendix, 100 new images and sidebars plus updated gear information.
