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 the Festival of Ethical Photography, Images Vevey, Craig Walsh, a Hoodman eyeshade and a copyright case.

  • The Guardian presents a selection of images from The Festival of Ethical Photography. The celebration of "ethically committed documentary" in Lodi in northern Italy runs to Oct. 23 with work by over 80 photographers on display.
  • LensCulture previews Images Vevey, the biennial photography festival on the shores of Lake Geneva, which opens in September. The free exhibitions feature the work of 45 international photographers on the theme "Together. The vie ensemble."
  • Grace Ebert features Craig Walsh's Monuments project. "Made with photographic slides, the massive installation temporarily transformed a tree into a large-scale portrait, enlivening the canopy and initiating what's become a 30-year project," she writes.
  • Lloyd Chambers solves an eyesore with a $20 Hoodman Eyeshade for his Sony A1. Apparently the A1 isn't perfect, after all.
  • Greenberg and Reznicki tell the story of a 75-year-old who took up painting, was assigned to interpret a work by a famous artist for an adult education class and was sued for copyright infringement for $5,000, giving lawyers A Bad Name. "The key here is that an attorney (two in fact at the 'National Law Firm') threatened a layperson mentioning copyright over and over in a situation where no copyright could possibly ever be filed," they write. "They did so knowing it would scare and intimidate an elderly woman who has zero experience with the law."

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