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 World Sports Photography Awards, a Chernobyl archive, Doug Ross, David Gallagher and Joe McNally.

  • The Guardian has published the winning images from the first World Sports Photography Awards.
  • Marigold Warner showcases A Lost Archive of Life in Chernobyl curated by Ukrainian photographer Maxim Dondyuk who smuggled images out of the exclusion zone for two years. The collection is now a virtual gallery. "I felt like an archaeologist, rifling through heaps of garbage in search of lost memories," he says.
  • Suzanne Sease features the Coney Island monochromes of Doug Ross, which have been published in a Coney Island, a Black and White Retrospective. The title contains image taken over 10 years "of an ever-changing canvas of people and experiences by the water's edge, on the boardwalk and the streets that surround."
  • You Have to See This Place was a KickStarter project by David Gallagher launched in 2018 as "an experiment involving places and photos." You pick a location and he sends you a print of the photo he took closest to it. After 100 prints, he's posted the collection online.
  • A few years ago Joe McNally bought a print he now looks at every day because it contains Hope in a Picture. It's Bobby Kennedy campaigning for the presidency in 1968 from the roof of a car. "The energy, the eagerness, the readiness for change is in this picture," he writes.

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