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 Ukraine protests, Bill Dane, Dane Shitagi, Jess Dugan and Canon's super-telephotos.

  • In People Rally Worldwide in Support of Ukraine, the Guardian presents images from around the world of anti-war protests against Putin's unwarranted invasion of that country.
  • Thomas Hawk reviews Bill Dane Pictures, the full title of which is Bill Dane Pictures’s not pretty. 50 Years of Photographs -- I’m still in love. "Accompanying his images in the book are his own staccato like typed words," Hawk writes. "Like a beat poet Bill opines on his own photographic path as well what he sees around him -- words to go with the pictures."
  • The Phoblograther interviews Dane Shitagi on capturing The Astonishing Beauty of Ballet. "I like to think that we're turning the world into our stage," Shitagi says of his real-world settings for ballerina portraits.
  • In Look at Me Like You Love Me, Joanna Creswell reviews Jess Dugan's new photo book of that name. "Across 108 pages of images -- mostly portraits and self-portraits accompanied by the occasional still life -- there is desire, love, people embracing, intimacy, tenderness between bodies and there is seeing and being seen," she writes.
  • In Canon Goes With the Big Artillery, Lloyd Chambers admits to being puzzled by Canon's new super-telephotos. "What are they for?" he asks. "I'm actually not sure ... birds, wildlife, sports? Because shooting through that much air will be like shooting through a wavering haze -- atmospheric distortion is a heavy hand on image quality."

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