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 Roger Minick, Pete Souza, Nikon live streaming events and Joe McNally.
- In This Photographer Captured American Tourists Taking in Epic Natural Vistas, Rian Dundon presents a few of Roger Minick's 1980 Sightseer series. "I began to compare what I was seeing to the religious pilgrimages of the Middle East and Asia, where the pilgrims are not just making a trip to make a trip, ... they have instead come seeking something deeper, beyond themselves and are finding it in this moment of visitation," Minick wrote.
- After eight years at the seat of power, how does former White House photographer Pete Souza spend his time now? Katie Dowd reports he's busy Mocking the Trump Administration on Instagram. He's already got 66 posts on his new Instagram account.
- Nikon Live From WPPI 2017 starts tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. when the first of eight Nikon Ambassadors and other pros live stream their presentations at the wedding photographers' event in Las Vegas.
- Joe McNally isn't going to Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai this year. In A Gathering of Friends, he explains why, reflecting on the nature of photos: "They are important. They cross boundaries simply and directly. They need no statehood. They are, at their core, expressions of love, tolerance, decency, sympathy, friendship and understanding. They don't sow fear. They don't exclude. They beckon and embrace the viewer."
