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 women in photography, ON1 Photo Raw, Syria's war through a teen's eyes and Penelope Umbrico.

  • In Honoring Women In Photography, Kevin Raber presents the first of a two-part series about "the women that have been part of Luminous-Landscape over the last few years." Which makes them contemporary photographers, rather than the masters of the past.
  • ON1, Inc. has announced its ON1 Photo Raw will be released in the fall. With code optimized for today's super-megapixel cameras and high-performance computer graphics systems, Photo Raw will be "the world's fastest, most flexible and easiest-to-use Raw processor and photo editor on the market," the company promised. Members $149.99/year) will get a free perpetual license. Others can submit their email address to be notified when it's available.
  • In A Teenage Photographer Witnessing Syria's War, Rene Silverman presents 20 images Turkish photographer Furkan Temir captured as a teen who left school one day to bear witness the war with his camera and a sleeping bag.
  • Jonathan Blaustein interviews Penelope Umbrico about, among other things, the transgressive nature of art and the implications for copyright. Her project Suns, for example, includes 541,795 pictures of sunsets she found searching the word "sunset" on Flickr, cropping just the suns from them and making 4x6 Kodak machine prints of them she assembled into a wall depicting "collective, iconic ideas of what a sunset is."

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