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 Todd Webb, Ricoh following Panasonic out the door, Stephen Robinson and journalism contests.
- In Vintage Photos of What Made Postwar New York City Tick, Justin Porter tells the story of Todd Webb with 18 of the photographer's postwar images. Museum of the City of New York will open an exhibit of his work next week. "My equipment is about as complete as I could wish," Webb once said. "I am broke. But what the hell, you canâ€™t have everything."
- The Nikkei Asian Review is reporting Ricoh May Close Shutter on Personal Camera Business. The news, which Ricoh has subsequently denied, follows a similar move by Panasonic.
- In Experimenting With Constructed Landscapes, Stephen Robinson describes his approach to translating the live 3D panorama experience into a 2D image using aspherical lenses.
- In We Didn't Win? The Vagaries of Judging Journalism Contests, Paul Stevens muses about why Associated Press photographer Burhan Ozbilici didn't win the Pulitzer for his photo of the assassination of Russiaâ€™s ambassador to Turkey last December. After all, it won Photo of the Year in the 2017 World Press Photo contest.
