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 Jana Sophia Nolle, Frederick Douglass, 20 rising female photojournalists, the state of the art, carrying two cameras and a 15 percent rental discount.

  • In Living Room by Jana Sophia Nolle, Marigold Warner presents the German photographer's reconstructions of the makeshift dwellings of San Francisco's homeless people in the living rooms of the wealthy. The project "might reveal that despite one's means, we all seek to create meaning and understanding through the place we call home," Nolle says.
  • In Picture This: Frederick Douglass Was the Most Photographed Man of His Time, Michel Martin interviews Harvard's John Stauffer about Douglas's sophisticated use of photography to tell the truth about being black in America. Stauffer is a co-author of Picturing Frederick Douglass.
  • Brienne Walsh and Jacqui Palumbo introduce 20 Rising Female Photojournalists. "Each of them herald change to the field in their visual style, unique perspective and focus on underrepresented topics," they write. And each gets a mini-slide show, too.
  • In Where Are We?, Thom Hogan wonders, "Why might you not get good-looking photos? And where do we really stand with today's products? Where might we go next?"
  • In Five Reasons Why I Also Carry a Compact Camera, Derrick Story explains why he carries both a smartphone and a Fujiflm XF10. His brother-in-law asked.
  • BorrowLenses if offering a 15 percent discount on any rental for Memorial Day weekend when you use the code SAVE15NOW at checkout. And Memorial Day itself is free.

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