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 35 photos of the week, Rosem Morton, Christian Rodriquez, Jonathon Keats, Andrew Molitor and Jim Kasson.

  • Salt Cathedral, Metro-Man, Shark Ballet are among the 35 photos Alan Taylor has curated to chronicle the week.
  • In I Was Raped and Broken So I Picked Up My Camera, Rosem Morton tells how she used her camera to help recover from the attack. "As I complete this photo project, I am learning that rape is not just an assault of the mind and body but also of the voice," she writes.
  • In 'Your Dad's Not Feeling Well', photographer Christian Rodriquez documents his father's coronavirus odyssey. "Framing and photographing these moments through tears made me feel that my family was one of the lucky ones," he writes.
  • Jonathon Keats made Four Custom Cameras that will document climate change around Lake Tahoe until 3018. The pinhole cameras "will help our descendants understand climate dynamics and help people envision their long-term impact on the environment today," Daniel Oberhaus writes.
  • In The Unpower of the Photograph, Andrew Molitor tries to explain why powerful images fail ultimately to move us. "The moment we turn away from the picture the dream, the nightmare, begins to fade; our powerful emotional response begins to fade," he writes.
  • Unlike Ming Thein and Kirk Tuck, both of whom have signed off recently, Jim Kasson has only been absent a while. In Why So Few Posts?, he explains why.

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