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 Arthur Nazaryan, the Nikon D5 and SB-5000, the Save Packfilm petition and the Art Wolf Next-Generation Photographers Grant.

  • James Estrin presents 22 images from Arthur Nazaryan's project to document the Somali people. He'd been there in 2012 but couldn't afford to return for an extended stay. His solution was Finding Somali Life in Minnesota, where 30,000 Somalis, mostly refugees, have built a life building bridges instead of walls.
  • In Live from Las Vegas! D5! SB-5000!, Joe McNally gets his mitts on a Nikon D5 and a couple of pre-production SB-5000 strobes during WPPI in Las Vegas and escapes to tell the story. Nikon's Lindsay Silverman took the behind the scenes shots showing the lighting setups.
  • "We are dedicated to finding a viable alternative future for the only remaining professional peel-apart packfilm, Fujifilm FP-100C," and you can help Save Packfilm by signing the petition.
  • The Luminous Endowment's 2016 Art Wolfe Next-Generation Photographers Grant will be awarded to seven photographers to join Art on a six-day workshop at a remote lodge in Katmai, Alaska. Art Wolfe and Michael Reichmann are the judges for the grant and they're getting antsy. The deadline for applications is March 31.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
