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 John Cantlie, Don McCullin, the Authority Collective, the best compact camera, Harold Davis, Amy Shore, Renan Ozturk and the Fence.

  • Richard Pérez-Peña and David Kirkpatrick report John Cantlie, Photographer Held by ISIS for 6 Years, Is Still Alive, UK Says. Cantlie was abducted with American journalist James Foley in November 2012. Foley was subsequently murdered.
  • In Don McCullin Is a War Photographer Just Don't Call Him an Artist, Alex Marshall takes a look at the photographer's retrospective that opened at the Tate today.
  • In Women of Color Organize for Access and Accountability in Photojournalism, James Estrin writes about the Authority Collective, whose members are "building a supportive community while challenging industry leaders' thinking about diversity and representation."
  • In What to Look at to Find the Best Compact Camera for You, Roger Cicala considers the various virtues of the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark III, Canon PowerShot G5 X, Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 IV and Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 V, among others.
  • In A Point of Information, Not a Point of Honor, Harold Davis observes, "It has not generally been recognized how much the break with the analog photographic toolset brought about by digital photography has upended this perpetual debate" about the mimetic nature of photography.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Amy Shore about her assignment for Motorcyclist. "Each day we roughly rode 230 miles along some of the smallest coastal roads in the U.K., but the ones with the very best views. Each day was magical," she says.
  • Serena Fox talks to Renan Ozturk about Connecting With the Extreme in the natural world. A photojournalist for National Geographic and Sony, Ozturk says, "To be 'in the right place at the right time,' in an incredibly intimate situation, you have to work with people for months and have trust building and approach the photography in that way."
  • Submissions are now being accepted for the eighth edition of The Fence, the largest outdoor photography exhibition series, displayed in eight cities across the United States and Canada.

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