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 Europe's wildfires, Kenro Izu, Paul Edmondson, Uta Barth, shells and medium format macro.

  • The Associated Press has published moving images of Europe's Wildfires. "Fires have torn through much of the continent, with blazes occupying emergency services in Portugal, Spain, France, England and Germany as the nations buckled under the unusually high temperatures."
  • The Spirit Within showcases images from Impermanence, a retrospective look at Kenro Izu's monochromatic work over 50 years using large format film.
  • Suzanne Sease features State of Main, the personal project of Paul Edmondson photographing "the towns, street corners, buildings and farms" of rural America. "In many ways the series is an expression of the American dream -- for opportunity, independence and patriotism. But it's also a study of hard times, abandoned homes and shuttered stores. It's these dualities that interest me the most and how in the end, it's nature that almost always seems to win."
  • James Cuno talks to Uta Barth about her Atmospheric Photographs in this 25-minute podcast. "Her series are often long-term engagements; she photographs the same place over many months or even years, to understand how light changes a space over time," he says. The Getty will present a retrospective of her career in the fall.
  • Jasenka Grujin found 21 Amazing Photos of Shells in case you need some inspiration lying on the hot sand at the beach this summer.
  • Lloyd Chambers discusses Simple Macro Work With Fujifilm GFX100S and ends up recommending a 35mm Nikon setup.

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