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 a new Kamoinge exhibit, Peter Baker, Joe McNally, shooting in summer heat and more fool's gold.

  • In Celebrating the Grace of Black Women, Antwaun Sargent reviews the African-American collective Kamoinge's new exhibit, Black Women: Power and Grace, at the National Arts Club in New York from May 28 to June 30.
  • In A Janitor Preserves the Seized Belongings of Migrants, Peter Baker tells the story of Tom Kiefer, a Customs and Border Protection janitor who started taking photos of confiscated items that have become a photo series titled El Sueño Americano.
  • Joe McNally is Dancing in the Kitchen with one (artificial) light (which, however, somehow disturbingly floods away any shadow the airborne dancer must have cast).
  • Kirk Tuck is preparing for Record Highs for Central Texas, sharing 10 tips for shooting in the heat that include warnings about hot sensors and expanding lens glass not to mention shade and hydration for the human element.
  • Greenberg and Reznicki have published the second part of Fool's Gold on copyright registration services. Interestingly, the pair have "offered to discuss these issues with any/all of these firms in a public forum and have it webcast live. So far none of the search and settle companies have taken us up on the offer."

We've also updated our Calendar and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
