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 Rwanda, derivative works, what a photo is about, legal advice for clients, Lexar's compact external SSDs and an RIP for a reader.

  • On the 25th anniversary of the Rwanda genocide, Beth Murphy reports on How Young Rwandan Genocide Survivors Are Documenting 25 Years of Healing. "Now three young men impacted by the violence have turned to photography, showing the resilience of the country," she says.
  • Ming Thein muses about Derivative Works and Photography. "Derivative work or not, art makes you stop, think and observe: and that's just what the prints do, providing I get the subject matter right," he writes.
  • Harold Davis asks, What Are These Tulip Photos About? "I like to understand what my photos are about, at least for me, as early as possible in the image-making process," he writes before admitting they can be about more than one thing.
  • In A Note to Prospective Clients, Kirk Tuck offers some legal advice to clients who think an attorney with no expertise in intellectual property law can protect them. "I know your strip mall attorney wrote all this stuff and you've probably never read it but you should," he advises. "And if you did you'd be embarrassed." Pointing out the unfairness of a clause in plain language is often enough to get the client to reconsider the wisdom of the whole thing.
  • Lexar has introduced its compact Lexar&Reg; Professional SL100 Pro Portable SSD in three sizes: 1-TB, 500-GB and 250-GB ($239.99, $134.99 and $89.99 respectively at B&H).
  • In RIP for a Reader, Mike Johnston remembers the reader who always signed his comments "Bryce Lee of Burlington Ontario Canada."

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