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 the border from both sides, the Sony FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS, Sebastian Rich and Bert Monroy.
- Agence France-Presse photographers Jim Watson and Guillermo Arias spent 10 Days Along the Border between the U.S. and Mexico, one on each side to document the landscape and the people. Alan Taylor presents 29 of their dramatic -- and revealing -- images.
- Roger Cicala has published the first of six parts of his Lens Teardown of the Complicated Sony FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS. "It ended up being the longest and most complex (6 hours) teardown we've ever done," he writes.
- Freelance photographer Sebastian Rich went to Washington to photograph people's reaction to Trump in one gesture. The variety of gestures may astound you. And they almost all do look more respectable in black-and-white.
- The Computer History Museum is featuring Bert Monroy's Times Square printed with the Epson SureColor P20000 64-inch printer for its new exhibit, "Make Software: Change the World!" The 22-foot long, 4-foot high image required 750,000 layers in Photoshop and features Monroy's family, friends and the pioneers of digital imaging. It was printed on Epson DisplayTrans Backlight Film II and is displayed on a massive backlit display.
