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 black-and-white photography, Cig Harvey, Chinatown, Joe McNally, Thom Hogan, Photographers Without Borders and Richard Avedon.

  • LensCulture has published 26 Black-And-White Photography Favorites among its most popular recent articles that feature black-and-white photography. That includes portfolios, essays, interviews, exhibitions and book reviews.
  • Grace Ebert celebrates the Serene Photographs of Cig Harvey. "Spanning nearly 20 years of her practice, the photographs shown here frame instances of serendipity, whether showcasing bright pink azaleas briefly pressed against foggy glass or the sun gleaming on a dark body of water," she writes.
  • In New Chinatown Photo Book Explores Neighborhood's Journey 'From Shame to Celebration', Joe Kukura looks at the new $40 title written by Sunset native Kathy Chin Leong with photos by Dick Evans. "We've gone behind the scenes to places where the public cannot go. There are buildings called 'family associations,'" Leong said. "We went inside of a few of these. You can't just go in there, you need to be invited. You need to get permission from the elders and get permission to take photos."
  • In Nikon Z 7 II Fashion Shoot: Garden & Grit, Joe McNally used a pre-production version of the new mirrrorless flagship. "The camera performed superbly," he reports.

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