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 Nick Brandt, Christian Schirrmacher, Eric Mencher and Holga.

  • In Sublime Photos of African Wildlife Roaming Their Lost Habitat, Mark Murrmann takes a look at photographer Nick Brandt's new project Inherit the Dust, which shows "where elephants, giraffes, lions and other animals once roamed by placing 30-foot panels with photographs in the now industrialized landscapes."
  • In Lifelines of the Homeless in 12 Images, Olaf Willoughby interviews Christian Schirrmacher, a police officer who takes photos of Berlin's homeless with a Leica Q. "A smile will almost always help to open doors," he suggests. "And when not, it is better to be patient."
  • In How Eric Mencher Takes Wonderful iPhone Photos Of People, Kate Wesson interviews the freelance documentary photographer from Philadelphia. He uses a variety of camera apps (and has shelved his Canon dSLR except for weddings) but likes Snapseed for editing.
  • Freestyle Photographic Supplies reports Holga Factory Ceases Operation of Holga Cameras. "According the factory spokesperson in China, '... all Holga tooling has already been thrown away and there is nothing available for sale.'" The smartphone revolution apparently has no mercy.

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