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 Sally Mann, MoMA's digital art vault, John Rogers and the state of the camera market.

  • In Sally Mann's Exposure, the photographer discusses her experience since the publication of Immediate Family, her 1992 book featuring her children at their summer home. Mike Johnston, who knew her at the time and published his portrait of her today, describes the book as "great and rare work of art." Her piece provides a lot to think about. Innocence especially.
  • Ben Fino-Radin details MoMA's Digital Art Vault in three parts: the packager, the warehouse and the indexer. To guarantee authenticity, the museum uses the same technique Adobe DNG files employ, a generic version of which we described in Safeguarding The Integrity Of Your Photos.
  • Brian Lambert follows The strange saga of John Rogers who arranged to scan prominent publications' pre-digital photo archives for them. "Today, Rogers faces more than a dozen lawsuits, which together seek something north of $90 million."
  • Lloyd Chambers received an amusing email from a reader summing up the State of the Camera Market. Wear your sense of humor.

More to come...
