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 Huapeng Zhao, Alfred Stieglitz, Louis Vignes and Derrick Story.
- In Yan Tai in 13 Black and White Images, Huapeng Zhao takes his Leica M3 to the beach for a set of diverting monochrome images.
- In The Alfred Stieglitz Collection at the Art Institute of Chicago, Kenneth Tanaka reviews the "very ambitious project to fully digitize the 244 photographic works in the museum's Stieglitz Collection." The images are now accessible online.
- In The Getty Research Institute's Online Palmyra Exhibition, Jonathan Blaustein discusses Louis Vignes' photos of "a place that no longer exists." That would be 19th century Palmyra, which the Getty turned into an online exhibit.
- In The Creative Light, Derrick Story suggests "we responded in part to self-interest, hate and the random acts of nature with a beautiful photograph, a caring note, or inspiring song."
More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
