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 Viktor Macha, Franck Bohbot, the Arab Image Foundation, hot cameras and Joan Wilkinson Sadler.

  • In Blood and Iron: Photographing the 'End of the Industrial Revolution' presents 21 images by Czech photographer Viktor Macha capturing "the beauty of steel and iron making before automation takes over and the sight of men working in the glow of molten metal is lost forever."
  • I Am an Actor is Franck Bohbot's photo project depicting "the daily lives and struggles of an artist living in New York City." The portraits, which will be accompanied by an interview in the book, were all shot with a single light source.
  • In The Arab Image Foundation: Digitzing the Middle East's Photographic Heritage, Clémence Cottard, Charbel Saad and Rachel Tabet talk about how the nonprofit foundation in Beirut is digitizing its vast collection "with access, study and preservation in mind."
  • Thom Hogan's The Hot or Not List puts the Sony α9, Panasonic GH5, Fujifilm GFX and Nikon D500 on the hot list and six others on the not-so-hot list.
  • Joan's Stones is Joan Wilkinson Sadler's photo blog, each image accompanied by a short verse. Sadler passed away recently at the age of 95. "Her joyful invitation to all was to find new and fresh ways of 'seeing' that can increase our own sense of awe and wonder with the world around us," her obituary points out.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
