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 Walker Evans in France, Leslie Gleim, Control Room and Debi Cornwall.

  • In How France Shaped Walker Evans's American Vision, Jonathan Blaustein muses on the photographer's decision "to go to Paris in 1926 to study for a year at the Sorbonne." He quotes Evans, "America was a big business and I wanted to escape. It nauseated me. My photography was a semi-conscious reaction against right-thinking and optimism; it was an attack on the establishment."
  • Botanical Beauty celebrates Hawaiian photographer Leslie Gleim's macro photography. Explaining her preference for monochrome, she says, "Each image has been stripped to the Raw element of black and white, causing the mind's eye to read the unique nuances of each subject."
  • Control Room is a $4 app for Android or iOS that "brings some of Adobe Lightroom's development and library management controls and functionality to a mobile app." Here you see it in action on the left:
  • Mark Murrmann presents nine image from Debi Cornwall's book Welcome to Camp America: Inside Guantánamo Bay in The Inner Madness of GuantÁNamo. Images from the book will be on exhibit at New York's Steven Kasher Gallery, Oct. 26 to Dec. 22.

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