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 three photoessays from the Smithsonian, Rohingya refugees, black-and-white construction images, flowers into stone, making art books, Create Booklet 2 and a Skylum Luminar giveaway.

  • Smithsonian Magazine has published The Dispossessed, three photo essays from people around the globe whose lives are being swept up by these powerful historic forces. In In The Other America, Erika P. Rodríguez explores how the aftermath of Hurricane Maria is reshaping her identity as a Puerto Rican and as an American. In The Resistance, Wayne Martin Belger casts his eye on people who have been marginalized or scorned, from protesters to rebels and other outsiders. In The Rescuers, Lucian Perkins travels to Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, a French town with the usual tradition of helping refugees find themselves.
  • Alan Taylor presents 32 dramatic photos by Reuters photographer Clodagh Kilcoyne of Rohingya Refugees Earning a Meager Wage in the Fishing Industry.
  • Ming Thein presents The Face of Construction, a series of black-and-white images of construction workers in Hong Kong shot solely in existing light. "Simply no way to set up lights under those kinds of conditions!" he notes.
  • In Tulip Petal Detail After Karl Blossfeldt, Harold Davis turns a flower stem into stone in the style of Karl Blossfeldt.
  • In Making a Book About Artists' Books, the Getty Iris begins a five installment series running through July 31 exploring the process of making the book Artists and Their Books/Books and Their Artists. The series covers making an art book from idea to design and from printing through marketing.
  • Vogelbusch & Co. has released its $19.99 Create Booklet 2, a macOS app to impose PDF files into booklets. The application arranges the printed product's pages for faster printing, stitching, binding, cutting and reduction of paper waste.
  • With two licenses, PhotoRumors is throwing a Skylum Luminar 2018 Giveaway. Just log in with your email address to enter. There's also a $10 discount coupon available on the site.
