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 the Dakar Rally, the National Archives, Brian Bowen Smith and Jim Kasson.

  • Steven Bloor presents images from the Dakar Rally 2020 in Saudi Arabia. The 12-stage race covered 7,500 km from the shores of the Red Sea to the Qiddiya.
  • The National Archives modified a photo of the 2017 Women's March currently on exhibit by blurring out references to Trump and women's body parts on the protestors' signs.
  • Dancing With Your Angel highlights Brian Bowen Smith's experiments shooting motion using the new Leica M10 Monochrom. Inspired by the sketches of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he wondered how to make photos look like charcoal drawings. Try turning one into a negative of itself.
  • So what did Jim Kasson do at his Opening Reception at Monterey Museum of Art last night? He took photos. "The dark walls and tight spotlights make for good print viewing, but for challenging photography," he writes.

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