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 summer solstice, the Battery Park City landfill, Roy Decarava, Jarrod Boord, five photo papers, a 5x7-inch holder, DAM plus CMS and a story to remember.

  • Matt Fidler presents images of Summer Solstice 2019 Celebrations across the U.K. as summer dawns on us today.
  • In It's a Beach if We Say So, Jeff Giles collects black-and-whites from the New York Times photo morgue of the Battery Park City landfill from the 1970s and 1980s. "We know something the sunbathers don't. Something horrific. Something that will unmake and remake, the world by the time they reach middle age," he writes of the lead image.
  • Miss Rosen is Celebrating 'The Sweet Flypaper of Life' In Roy Decarava's Centennial Year. The landmark art book collaboration with Langston Hughes was republished last year by David Zwirner Books.
  • Jarrod Boord's Stunning Views From the Deep just happen to be available on Adobe Stock, which "gave me a purpose for taking photos and video. It was like I had a new client who wanted every one of my photos, as long as it had purpose," he says.
  • Greg Scoblete lists Five Must-See Photo Papers that will be at PhotoPlus in October.
  • Robert Bieber shares a 3D printer project to build a 5x7-inch Wet Plate Holder. "You can print every part of it except for the dark slide, which I attempted printing once and found it to be simultaneously too thick and insufficiently opaque and the light traps which you'll need some foam for (more on that later)," he writes.
  • Karthik Muradlidharan explains Why Your Business Needs Both Content Management and Digital Asset Management. "DAM and CMS work together to provide seamless experiences that scale," he writes. And they increase productivity, leverage artificial intelligence and save money, he adds. But what killed us is his assertion that 30 percent of consumers "get frustrated with bad design or awkward interfaces." Those must have been the ones who weren't frustrated with the design of the survey.
  • Andrew Molitor shares My Favorite Photographer Story. It's your reward for reading this far.

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