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 Marco Barbieri, Marko Durico, David Hobby, Joe McNally, Sebastiaan de With, Thom Hogan, copyright video series and the Magnum Square Print Sale.

  • "Italian photographer Marco Barbieri's series Land of Plenty presents an almost surreal documentation of Qatar's capital Doha, exploring themes of immigration and class division in a city of constant reinvention," writes Staphanie Wade.
  • The Former Yugloslavia's Brutalist Beauty is captured in a series of images by Marko Durico. "Brutalism was popular throughout the eastern bloc but the former Yugoslavia made it its own -- seizing on it as a way to forge a visual identity poised between east and west," writes Ivana Sekularac in the accompanying text.
  • Strobist David Hobby continues his Strobist Lighting Cookbook with Left Brain/Right Brain in which he works with Sara Lando again. "In many ways, Sara is the opposite of me: I am male. Sara is female. I am a left brain, Sara is a right brain. Sara is also a stylish dresser," he begins.
  • Joe McNally goes all Lights and Shadows for Halloween. "Fun time of year to post a couple shadowy, sort of spooky pics," he warns.
  • Sebastiaan de With finds A Completely New Camera inside the iPhone 11 in the first part of his multi-part series on the new smartphone. "I've taken some time to analyze the iPhone 11's new image capture pipeline and it looks like one of the greatest changes in iPhone cameras yet," the designer of the Halide camera app writes.
  • Thom Hogan has The Right Answer to the Wrong Question. It's not about the sensor, he posits.
  • In Copyright Office Launches Learning Video Series, Carolyn Wright reports the videos cover "what is copyright, copyright on the Internet, what to do when others use your ideas, fair use and the public domain."
  • The Magnum Square Print Sale in partnership with Aperture offers museum quality, signed or estate-stamped, 6x6-inch square prints at just $100 through tomorrow.

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