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 Ray Johnson, Jennifer MacNeill, Harold Davis, Vanessa Bryant and Prints for Wildlife.

  • Please Send to Real Life is an exhibit of some of the over 3,000 photographs taken artist Ray Johnson (1927-1995) during his four-decade career. He stopped exhibiting in 1991, but embarked on a "new career as a photographer," shooting with 137 disposable cameras in the last three years of his life. The playful images are just coming to light now.

  • Suzanne Sease features images of Assateague Island, the personal project of Jennifer MacNeill. "I used to only go to view the feral ponies but they're sometimes hard to locate in the cold months, so I learned to see the beauty in the overlooked elements, lichen covered branches, a mushroom growing out of a manure pile, a tree bent over time by the strong ocean winds," MacNeill writes.
  • Harold Davis has been Dancing With the Pasta Stars. The mesmerizing images were "created using LAB in Photoshop from the version of the pasta spiral photographed on my light box and then inverted."
  • Vanessa Bryant Awarded $16m in Suit Over Photos of Kobe's Crash, The Guardian reports. The jury returned a unanimous verdict against Los Angeles county after deputies and firefighters who shared grisly photos of the NBA star, his 13-year-old daughter and other victims killed in a 2020 helicopter crash. "I live in fear every day of being on social media and these popping up," Bryant testified. "I live in fear of my daughters being on social media and these popping up."
  • On Aug. 28, Prints for Wildlife will feature over 130 photographers, including Will Burrard Lucas, Beverly Joubert, Drew Doggett, Ami Vitale, Joachim Schmeisser, GaĆ«l Ruboneka Vande weghe, Andrew Liu, Marsel van Oosten and Karim Illya. Wildlife non-profit organization African Parks, which manages 20 national parks in 11 countries, will receive 100 percent of the profits to help protect 30 African parks by 2030 for the benefit of wildlife and communities. The sale runs for a month.

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