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 Hurricane Florence, Adam Marelli, Garry Winogrand, Lee Johnson, Sony vs. Panasonic one-inchers and lens adapters.

  • Alan Taylor presents 33 photos of The Aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Among the images of devastation is one of a pier at Myrtle Beach that is cinematic in its night time drama.
  • Makers and Craftsmen profiles the cultural photography of Adam Marelli. His portraits of weavers, dyers, gondola makers, cheese makers, blacksmiths and carpenters opened "his eyes to the curiosity of craftsmen and the patrons that support their work" and "radically shifted how he viewed photography and led to unexpected discoveries."
  • Richard Brody explores How Garry Winogrand Transformed Street Photography. "The probing and insightful new biographical documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, directed by Sasha Waters Freyer (opening Sept. 19 at Film Forum), shows how Winogrand's confrontational, teeming pictures pulled street photography into artistic modernity," he writes.
  • In The Slow Meditation of Large Format Photography, Lee Johnson writes about his adventure in long-exposure large-format photography that evolved into automated pans using a Raspbery Pi Zero programmed in Perl.
  • In Sony RX-100m6 Versus Panasonic ZS200, Thom Hogan compares two "very small compact cameras with very big specifications."
  • In Lens Adapters -- FUD to Enlightenment, Jim Kasson demystifies adapters that do not have glass in them. He's used them for years to mount Leica glass on Sony cameras. The three issues involved are length, tilt and flare. "Once you know the ropes, adapters aren't scary at all," he promises.

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