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 Nicholas JR White, "Britain From the Air", Wayne Miller and Esperanza Spalding.

  • In The Culture of Bothies Photographed by Nicholas JR White, Rosie Flanagan presents a few of the English photographer's images of "bothies -- basic dwellings left unlocked, available for travelers to shelter in at no cost" found in the remote and mountainous regions of the U.K.
  • The University of Cambridge has posted Britain From the Air: 1945-2009, a set of 1,500 images shot by RAF pilots. "The photographs, covering almost every corner of the U.K., bring back to life a disappeared Britain and capture the loss of our industrial heritage, the destruction of ridge and furrow landscapes unchanged for centuries and the emergence of motorways, skyscrapers and modern cityscapes," the notes say.
  • In These Photos of a Segregated U.S. Navy Unit Were Lost for Decades They Still Have a Story to Tell, John Edwin Mason presents Magnum photographer Wayne Miller's images of Pot Luck, a photographic series about a segregated all-black unit that was assigned to the Naval Supply Depot on Guam. They were recently rediscovered by Miller's daughter.
  • Jacob Blickenstaff goes On the Road With Esperanza Spalding in his continuing series On the Road, which depicts the creative lives of notable musicians.

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