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 Letizia Battaglia, the right to film police, Joshua Holko's toughest print job and a Nikon battery recall.

  • Elisabetta Povoledo profiles Italian photographer Letizia Battaglia in A Sicilian Photographer of the Mafia and Her 'Archive of Blood.' "I did exhibits against the Mafia, in Palermo, on the streets, in Corleone," Battaglia says. "I was afraid. There, I said it, I was afraid. It was true." But that didn't stop her from setting up oversize photographs of Mafia victims in the main square of Corleone.
  • In Federal Appeals Court: You Have a Constitutional Right to Film Police Officers in Public, Mark Stern reports the Third Circuit court ruling joins rulings from the First, Fifth, Seventh, Ninth and Eleventh Circuits "in concluding that the Constitution guarantees a right to record."
  • Australian photographer Joshua Holko describes making The Toughest Print, a very high-key snowscape. "The photograph was taken last winter in Svalbard during my snowmobile expedition and is a layered white-on-white arctic landscape," he writes. "The landscape was bathed in a very soft ethereal light when I made this photograph and contrast was extremely low."
  • Nikon has issued an EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery Pack Recall. The battery is included with the D800, D800E, D810A, D810, D610, D600, D7200, D7100, D7000, D500 cameras and the Nikon 1 V1 camera. But EN-EL15 batteries supplied with D810A, D810, D610, D600, D500, D7200 and D7100 are not included in this voluntary recall.

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