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 scavengers at Chernobyl, Pablove Shutterbugs, a Hernandez photo book, Greg Heisler talking to David Hobby and Kevin L. Ferguson on Jason Shulman.

  • InThe Daring Laborers Who Sandblast Chernobyl's Radioactive Metal, Laura Mallonee presents 12 images from Chernobyl by Pierpaolo Mittica. "There's this belief that vodka cleans everything," Mittica said after spending two months following the scavengers for his photo series The Radioactive Gold of Chernobyl.
  • Pablove Shutterbugs teaches children living with cancer "to develop their creative voice through the art of photography." Ellyn Kail wrote about the program in This Photography Program Empowers Kids Living With Cancer.
  • In This Week in Photography Books: Anthony Hernandez, Jonathan Blaustein critiques the photographer's latest book Forever. "I think it's vital to know that about the photographs, to truly appreciate them," he writes. "Some are too dry or too reminiscent of things I've seen before, but others are absolutely perfect."
  • In the most recent installment of his Lighting 103 series, Strobist David Hobby talks to Greg Heisler on Light and Color. And it was illuminating. "This is the magic in pictures that most viewers will not even consciously perceive, yet all will subconsciously absorb as a layer of realism," Hobby writes. "This is magic we can create as lighting photographers."
  • In To Cite or to Steal? When a Scholarly Project Turns Up in a Gallery, Kevin L. Ferguson writes about Jason Shulman's exhibit Photographs of Films. Which struck him as "a rip-off" of his own work. The article talks about copyright issues and details how to create a composite image of an entire film.

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