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 Heisler's Puerto Rico, Atget's Paris, Kilauea, Thomas Mangelsen, TapHanger, Ninalee Allen Craig and a Rocky Nook discount.

  • In Puerto Rico's Long Journey Out of Darkness, photographer Todd Heisler shows how people are surviving as the island waits for its electrical grid to be rebuilt. "More than six months after Hurricanes Irma and Maria swept across Puerto Rico, people are still without power," he reports.
  • Bendan Seibel presents a nice selection of Eugène Atget's photos of The Urban Facelift of Paris in the 19th century. "He photographed the fading ghosts haunting street corners along the Seine, the ragpickers, prostitutes and laborers," he writes.
  • Alan Taylor presents 24 photos of Kilauea's Newest Lava Fissures on Hawaii's Big Island.
  • If you missed the 60 Minutes broadcast last night, here's the profile of wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen by Anderson Cooper. "You wait long enough, it does pay off," Mangelsen tells him.
  • TapHanger is a fast and easy kit for hanging framed prints that weigh up to 20 lbs. on drywall using double-headed pins. One $13 kit can hang 40 frames.
  • Ninalee Allen Craig passed away at the age of 90. She was the girl in Rush Orkin's photograph American Girl in Italy, shot in Florence in 1951.
  • Rocky Nook is offering a 40 percent discount on all titles when you use the code MOM2018 at checkout (and you don't need to be a mom).

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