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 David Butow, Istanbul Photo Awards, All Change, Milan's Duomo, Paul Almasy, Sirkhane Darkroom, precautions, a Hall of Fame and superpowers.

  • In A Front Row Seat to 2020, photojournalist David Butow shares images of his perspective on recent events. "It's impossible to know right now how these events will shape history," he says.
  • The winners of this year's Istanbul Photo Awards have been announced. The four categories are news single, news story, sports single and sports story.
  • All Change is a photographic project documenting the last stops on the London Underground. In her piece describing the project, Marigold Warner explains, "Two years ago, 13 photographers were allocated a stop at the end of a London tube line, for a collaborative project titled All Change."
  • Ming Thein's photos of Milan's Duomo were taken just six months ago in what was another world. Still, the Madonnina watches over the city.
  • BBC has published a small selection of Paul Almasy's monochrome images of Post-War Paris. He shot about 120,000 black-and-white photos before he died at the age of 97.
  • Sirkhane Darkroom is a mobile photography school in Turkey providing instruction to Turkish, Syrian and Kurdish children. Founder Serbest Salih is himself a refugee from Syria and wanted to find a way to help other refugee children create beauty and joy out of the darkness of their past.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
