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 Rich-Joseph Facun, Hudson River Valley estates, Omar Z Robles, Larry Fink, cats and the American Photography Open 2018.

  • In One Photographer's Love Letter to Appalachia, Ellyn Kail talks to Ohio photographer Rich-Joseph Facun about Black Diamonds, his ongoing project photographing Millfield, a coal-mining town of 341 people.
  • Rooms With a View presents Pieter Estersohn's photos of a series of historic country estates in the Hudson River Valley. The images will be published in a book from Rizzoli next month.
  • SmugMug Films presents Pointe of Focus, a peek into the world of photographer Omar Z Robles. "Leaning on his background in performance arts, Robles captures the beauty of ballet dancers using the vibrant streets of Rio de Janeiro as their stage. The familiar background strips away the barrier between subject and viewer, daring you to explore the power of being different:"
  • In Finding Brotherhood in the Boxing Ring, John Otis talks to Larry Fink before an exhibit of his boxing photographs opens at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. "I'm not a violent person by nature, but there are some evil forces out there that should be pummeled into the ground," Fink tells him.
  • Alan Taylor succumbs to presenting 17 Historic Cat Photos on International Cat Day. Well, they're old if not exactly historic. "Fashions and technologies may change over time, but cats never go out of style," he claims.
  • Aug. 31 is the deadline to enter the American Photography Open 2018. The Grand Prize includes $5,000, a Tamron 24-70mm G2 lens plus additional prizes. In September the short list will be announced and a community voting gallery opened with the winner announced Oct. 25.

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