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 Jack Delano, Mario Carnicelli, Patrick Di Fruscia, Adrian Samson, the Panasonic G9 and Ming Thein.

  • Jack Delano's Color Photos of Chicago's Rail Yards in the 1940s "were made on Kodachrome color transparencies, wonderfully preserved in the Library of Congress today," Alan Taylor writes. Indeed, they are marvelously digitized in this presentation of 21 photos. The 75-year-old images seem to be recent digital captures.
  • In A Kaleidoscopic Portrait of America in 1966, Miss Rosen presents a few images from American Voyage by Mario Carnicelli. He had won a Popular Photography photo contest whose prize was a one-month trip across the U.S. Imagine Alexis de Tocqueville with a camera.
  • World Landscape Photographer and Professional Dreamer Patrick Di Fruscia blogs about his Give Back To Nature project. "I truly believe that together we can make a difference and leave this world a better place," he writes.
  • In Q&A: Adrian Samson Shoots for Frieze Art Fair, Diane Smyth interviews the photographer about his "eye-catching commission for Frieze Masters" which included shooting a 3400-year-old Greek figure. "The Greek Psi figurine made my hand tremble," he admits. "I just imagined that someone had put all his love into this small piece 3400 years ago and the number of people that might have traded it throughout the centuries before it arrived in my studio."
  • Kirk Tuck bought a Panasonic G9 after a bad experience at a conference with shutter noise. Not his camera's shutter, though. A lesson for wedding photographers in there, too.
  • In Moving On, Ming Thein writes, "I have elected not to renew my contract with Hasselblad/DJI, which ended on 30 September." His fight for what users want has "been met mostly with internal resistance and a daily assortment of complaints, blames, demands and such from the user community."

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