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 Xyza Cruz Bacani, Imaginarium, super 'bridge' cameras and a Grateful Dead photo.
- Cynthia David profiles Filipino street and documentary photographer Xyza Cruz Bacani whose work has appeared in the New York Times, CNN and South China Morning Post. "Images are stories, frozen in time," Bacani said. "I try to shoot as often as possible to train myself and I consider the camera a part of my body."
- Imaginarium: The Process Behind the Pictures by Claire Rosen with contributions from Beth Taubner, Alessia Glaviano and Rebecca Manson "is a compendium of practical advice and information covering the photographic process from idea cultivation through execution." Through March 19, use coupon code Imagine20 for the ebook, Imagine30 for the print book or Imagine40 for the bundle (the number indicates the sale price).
- Kirk Tuck has a few thought on Super 'Bridge' Cameras in light of the full-frame and medium format competition and the preference for an APS-C sensor size for video. The Nikon 1 we mentioned last week gets a nod, too.
- Mike Moffit wants to know What Is Wrong With This Classic Grateful Dead Photo? If you're familiar with Portrero Hill, it should be obvious. The Getty Archive apparently is not.
More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
