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 Lynsey Addario, Tamara Reynolds, Alex ten Napel, Andy Goodwin, a commercial job, Shannon Corsi and microcolor.

  • In They Died by a Bridge in Ukraine, Andrew Kramer tells the story of the Perebyinis, a Ukrainian couple caught in a war. Lynsey Addario shot the photos that tell the story without a happy ending.
  • The Guardian presents a selection of images from The Drake, a photo book of life on the edge in Nashville by Tamara Reynolds. "My goal is to show the deep sadness that we carry moving through life in the face of mortality," she says.
  • Grace Ebert showcases the Hens and Roosters captured by Alex ten Napel in flights of fancy. "No matter the situation, the red-faced birds are wholly themselves, lurching from one spot to the next, burying themselves within masses of feathers and spreading their wings as if they'll finally lift off the ground despite being notoriously poor fliers," she writes.
  • Suzanne Sease features Andy Goodwin's Under Water Portraits, an ongoing personal project of which he notes "it's not always easy to communicate with them on what I'd like them to try, so sometimes after a little coaching I'll give them the cable release and let them shoot the portraits when they feel they are at their photogenic best!"
  • In Inside a Photo Assignment for Hire, Derrick Story walks through a timeline of a commercial job covering the Women's Public Safety Day he has just finished.
  • Zach Sutton describes how Shannon Corsi brings Winter Sports to life. "For her work, Shannon uses a large array of equipment on both the photo and video sides to achieve her intended goals," he writes.
  • Jim Kasson dives in Microcolor and CFA Spectra. "The idea behind the work that you're going to see below is to construct pairs of spectra that color-normal humans or the 1931 CIE 2-degree Standard Observer would say are close together," he writes. But it's not about color accuracy. "A camera with low microcolor would see smaller color differences than a human. A camera with high microcolor would see larger color differences than a human." Let the games begin.

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