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 Northern Ireland, Teacher Takeover, cropped crowds, wildfires at night, thoughts on moving to mirrorless and Terrell Lloyd.

  • In Funerals, Skirmishes and Protests: Photographing Ireland in the Time of Bobby Sands, James Estrin reviews an exhibit of the images of French photojournalist Yan Morvan from Northern Ireland in 1981 when the I.R.A. member died of a hunger strike. "It was like the biblical story of David and Goliath," Morvan said.
  • How I Survive: American Teachers and Their Second Jobs -- a Photo Essay, a photo essay by Peter Rad, is part of The Guardian US's three day guest-edited series called Teacher Takeover to highlight the crisis in America's classrooms and rising teacher activism. Some of the second jobs that teachers take on include oyster farming, Uber driver and retail jobs.
  • The Guardian also discovered Trump Inauguration Crowd Photos Were Edited After He Intervened. Jon Swaine reports, "The photographer cropped out empty space 'where the crowd ended' for a new set of pictures requested by Trump on the first morning of his presidency, after he was angered by images showing his audience was smaller than Barack Obama's in 2009." The information was revealed in investigative reports released to the Guardian under the Freedom of Information Act by the inspector general of the U.S. Dept. of the Interior.
  • Photojournalist Stuart Paley's Terra Flamma: Wildfires at Night is a 144-page 10x8-inch hardback that captures "the simultaneous beauty and destruction that wildfires bring as fire seasons get longer and more deadly, expensive, and destructive." Paley collected 10 years of images from the pines of Shasta Trinity National Forest to the chaparral of San Diego's Mexican border to Yosemite and the Western Sierras. It be released Sept. 15.
  • Derrick Story offers a few Thoughts From a Longtime Mirrorless Shooter for anyone considering switching.
  • In Passion and Tech Took Terrell Lloyd From 49ers Superfan to Team Photographer, Daven Mathies profiles the San Francisco native and lifelong 49ers fan who had been taking photos from his season ticket seats in the stands.
