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 Dr. Deborah Willis, Sheila Pree Bright, Gunner Stahl, Fyodor Yurchikhin, Alastair Philip Wiper, biographical fallacy and the Fujifilm 50mm f3.5.

  • In Celebrating Black History Month: A Multi-Generational Story, the Adobe photography team spotlights the work of Dr. Deborah Willis, Sheila Pree Bright and Gunner Stahl. "From a MacArthur Fellowship to an award-winning photo series to a Vogue photo spot, the accolades that these three photographers bring to the table are impressive, to say the least," the team writes.
  • Moss and Fog presents Russian Cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin's Images of Earth From the Space Station. He's been up there 672 days so he had to come up with some kind of hobby, apparently. But he picked a good one.
  • Grace Ebert looks at three books by British photographer Alastair Philip Wiper. Actually, it's only one -- Unintended Beauty -- with three different covers: an orange or blue option with architectural and machine focuses and a black one with hanging sausagesā .
  • Kirk Tuck continues his S1R saga (returned for repair) before considering Biographical Fallacy in response to Fujifilm's take down of an X100V promotional video by a rather aggressive Japanese photographer "blending the worst of Bruce Glidden and Garry Winogrand's street shooting techniques." Caravaggio is a witness for the defense.
  • Jim Kasson grabbed the Fujifilm 50mm f3.5 for his GFX 100 when it was discounted 50 percent earlier this week. He walks through his "usual lens screening test" to see if he has a good copy. And he does.

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