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 raptors, Sohrab Hura, Peter Bogaczewicz, Romanesco broccoli, Jason Lindsey, Jill Moniz, the future and ethics.

  • Grace Ebert features Mark Harvey's images of Raptors in Flight. "Lighting is a key aspect of my work to help draw out fresh views of well-known subjects and these birds are no exception, set within an intricate lighting setup to ultimately show the birds in a new light," Harvey says.
  • Spill will be a major exhibition of the work of Sohrab Hura at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam this fall. Joanna Cresswell tells his story. "He was just a kid with a camera and some issues to work through and it stayed that way until he began to show some of his work to friends and family when he was older," she writes.
  • In Surface Tensions, Devid Gualandris highlights Canadian photographer Peter Bogaczewicz’s new landscape series exploring the Arabian Gulf.
  • Harold Davis sees Romanesco Broccoli as a monochrome Fibonacci sequence. But you can also find them as leggings.
  • Suzanne Sease features Solar Heroes, the personal project of Jason Lindsey to celebrate the people who install solar. "Rather than focus on one industry replacing another, he wondered why no one was talking about how the solar industry was adding jobs," she writes. Yeah, why is that?
  • In A Reckoning With Photography's Exclusivity, Val Tate talks to PhotoFlux curator Jill Moniz about "how this exhibition aims to dismantle the white gaze and foreground Black artmaking." Of the exhibition Moniz says, "All these works speak of identity, agency and authenticity determined by the maker and the moment." Not, that is, by "hierarchical systems and institutions of stratification."
  • In Ask LensRentals, Ryan, Roger and Joey tackle a number of subjects from rental terms to filter usage to the future.
  • Andrew Molitor raises A Question of Ethics about a photo of a mother and her two daughters taken surreptitiously on the subway.

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