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 EPA in photos, optical finder or EVF, Victor J. Blue in Mosul and the end of the line for Popular Photography and American Photo.
- In These Photos Show How the EPA Transformed America, Andrew Small looks at how the EPA has improved life for everyday Americans. He collected his 1970-era images from the EPA's Documerica photo series on Flickr.
- Ming Thein asks, Optical Finder or EVF?. "Both have their advantages and disadvantages, and oddly they seem to be converging towards the middle of late," he begins.
- In The Daily Edit -- The New Yorker: Victor J. Blue, Heidi Volpe interviews Blue on the six week assignment. "Beauty per se isnâ€™t a goal Iâ€™m concerned with personally," he told her. "To me there are much more important aspirations for my pictures- truth being the first."
- Bonnier CEO Eric Zinczenko announced to employees yesterday that "we have decided to cease all media operations for Popular Photography and American Photo, effective today." Zinczenko said, "The rise of smartphone-camera technology and its increasing ability to capture quality photos and video and instantly share them socially has dealt the photo industry formidable challenges. For our brands, these industry challenges have left us with insurmountable losses in advertising and audience support."
