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 Girma Berta's shadows, the Lit List, Adriana Napolitano, three large photo printers and a new book of photos of musicians.

  • In Moving Shadows by Girma Berta, Stephanie Wade looks at the Ethiopian photographer's iPhone images isolated from their context and layered against a solid-color background. You may be forgiven for thinking of them as moving images.
  • Ellyn Kail suggests This New Award Is Exactly What the Photo Industry Needs. "The Lit List, launched by the photographer and writer Oriana Koren of the Authority Collective in collaboration with Diversify.Photo, amplifies the voices of marginalized and underrepresented lens-based artists," she explains. Great stuff it is, too.
  • In Adriana Napolitano Blends Pop, Surrealism, and Humor in Her Work, Jenny Carless profiles the paper sculptor who also builds sets she photographs and escapes with her paper cuts into surrealist photography. "It speaks to me — and I think it's a very fertile ground for my imagination," she says of the surrealism. And it's funny.
  • Dahlia Ambrose picks The Best Photo Printer in 2018 and Why You Will Want This One. Rob Wood at Light Stalking tell us they plan to keep evolving the piece. The current recommendations are for 13- to 17-inch printers that can handle both color and black-and-white printing, a tall order.
  • Jérôme Brunet's Into The Light, a 20 year retrospective, will be released in October with pre-orders accepted now. The book includes photographs of luminaries like B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Slash, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, U2, The Who, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Pinetop Perkins Foundation, which provides encouragement and support for young people at the beginning of their musical career and helps provide care and safety for elderly musicians at the twilight of their career.

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