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 Zhangjiajie, Mojgan Ghanbari, Adrian Wojtas and the America Photography Open.

  • A Photo Trip to Zhangjiajie visits Hunan Province in South Central Chin where life seems to be hung on the cliffs. Not for the faint of heart.
  • In Bridging the Gap Between Mothers and Daughters in Iran, Sara Aridi talks to Mojgan Ghanbari about her project The Wall. Young Iranian women keep things from their mothers, Ghanbari says, not from fear of retribution but fear of misunderstanding or judgment. The Wall is a series of mother-daughter portraits, photos from family albums and detail shots capturing her subjects' daily lives.
  • Adrian Wojtas' Dystopian Images Explore a Foggy Irish Town Drenched in Aquamarine Light. "For each shot, I tried to stay away from including objects that would give away the location, as well as minimized the inclusion of identifiable subjects such as cars or people," he says. And yet they seem haunted.
  • The America Photography Open is "a new competition to celebrate the best pictures submitted by photo enthusiasts, taken with any device." Deadline is Aug. 24. The Grand Prize of $5,000, a Tamron 24-70 G2 lens plus additional prizes will be announced along with the Community Voting Award winner at an event at Photo Plus on Oct. 25.

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