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. This time we look at weird photos, Henry Peter Bosse, Yevhen Kotenko and Detroit.

  • Weird, Wonderful Photos From the Archives is Alan Taylor's grab bag of "remarkable, strange, hilarious, or just great shots." Thirty-four of them, actually. You'll laugh.
  • In Engineers' Blue, Francis Hodgson provides a good argument against canned asparagus in discussing the cyanotypes of Henry Peter Bosse. "Engineers' blue is a type of brick, made of heavier clay than the standard, more nearly waterproof, even less easy to crush. It was used by Victorian builders where great strength was needed, but because it looked so different, it also provided a simple vocabulary for (restrained) decorative fanciness. That is exactly how I feel about Bosse's blue," he writes.
  • Ukranian photographer Yevhen Kotenko would peek out his parents' kitchen window On the Bench four floors down and usually find something to photograph.
  • Rian Dundon thinks Detroit's Story Is Far From Over after looking at Camilo José Vergara's photos.

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