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 Baluchistan, messaging, Bart Kuyken, Kirk Tuck and Velvia 100.

  • In Rising From the Ashes of War, Cat Lachowskyj interviews Enayat Asadi about his series documenting the under reprsented reality of Baluchistan province on Iran’s eastern border. "It's a volatile situation and the people who live there spend their lives working in fuel, human and drug trafficking," he says.
  • Rafał Milach tells Michael Segalov about Sun-Seekers at an Abandoned Forced Labor Camp, his best picture. But he's not boasting about it. "Today I understand that, as photographers, we aren't simply neutral observers," he says. "Pictures spread messages and depictions, the camera gives you power to shape the world and how it's seen." This image changed his mind about what he was doing.
  • During UNICEF UK's Sleeping with Art's first event at Lemore Estate in Herefordshire Sept. 23 and 24, one large scale fine art print of Bart Kuyken's Emory Porsche 356 Chassis photograph will be sold with all proceeds going to the cause of international vaccine procurement and supply.
  • Kirk Tuck was caught in A Driving Rain Storm. And got "a bit lucky." A father and daughter were passing by him, umbrellas held up against the storm. "Luck corresponds to the patience you bring to the unfolding moments," he writes.
  • Fujifilm has announced it has discontinued Velvia 100 in the U.S. effective immediately. The color reversal film uses phenol, isopropylated phosphate within the layers of the film, a substance the Environmental Protection Agency has banned. The company will continue to sell Velvia 50 and Kodak Ektachrome 100 also remains available as a color reversal film.

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