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 mirrorless camera design, the Tilbakeblikk project, Bamako Encounters and what Mary Ellen Mark did for John Irving's latest novel.

  • In Close, but no cigar: how to design mirrorless right, Ming Thein has created a gallery of the design faults of current mirrorless cameras. But he also presents "a list of all the really good things that every mirrorless camera should have and where it's been done before and not necessarily to the exclusion of other functions."
  • In Norway Then and Now: Tilbakeblikk, Alan Taylor explains Tilbakeblikk means "looking back" in Norwegian (a language we keep trying to pick up, er du snil) before showing 18 images of long ago paired interactively with their modern equivalents. Just click on the image to see 100+ years later from nearly the same spot.
  • Over 100 photographers from 20 countries were chosen to exhibit their images during the 10th Bamako Encounters, the African Biennale of Photography in Mali, which runs through Dec. 31.
  • In John Irving Always Knows Where He's Going, Lynn Neary reports that Irvings' new novel Avenue of Mysteries "all started when he went India for a photo shoot with his friend, the late photographer Mary Ellen Mark, and her filmmaker husband Martin Bell."

More to come...
