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 Lee Friedlander, Sascha Rheker, Sony a9 banding and Hany Farid.

  • Jonathan Blaustein presents 15 of Lee Friedlander's Photos of 1960s T.V. Sets from the photographer's The Little Screens project, 50 of which are featured in The Grain of the Present exhibition at Pier 24 in San Francisco. Like the TV broadcasts of that time, the images are black and white.
  • In Hong Kong and the Leica Sofort, photojournalist Sascha Rheker share his instant photos with the $300 Leica. "One big benefit for me," he says, "is that I have no undeveloped film that I have to get safely through the X-rays at the airport."
  • In Caution!!!! Banding!!!! OMG. OMG.Kirk Tuck makes fun of the sky-is-falling concern about banding on the Sony a9. It's the lighting, he says, not the camera. "You really don't have to go far to find banding in just about any camera that uses an electronic shutter," he explains.
  • Tiffanie Wen asks Hany Farid, a leading expert in digital forensics and image analysis, to explain The Hidden Signs That Can Reveal a Fake Photo. "There isn't an election that goes by where you don't see fake photographs in one form or another," says Farid.

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