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 Hurricane Ian, the American Badlands, Marilyn Nance, Clément Chapillon and Jim Kassons.

  • Alan Taylor posts 21 Early Photos of Hurricane Ian's Landfall in Florida "showing some of the destruction caused by this unusually intense storm."
  • Grace Ebert features the aerial photos of The Rugged, Textured Topographies of the American Badlands by Stockholm-based photographer Tobias Hägg. "These regions are replete with geological formations and terrain diversity and Hägg spotlights such shifts in elevation and soil by documenting the rippling, ravine crevices and buttes that overlook the area," she writes.
  • Photographer and visual artist Marilyn Nance's images of FESTAC '77 in Lagosoffer a glimpse of the radical possibilities of Pan-African unity. Over 15,000 artists, intellectuals and performers from 55 nations worldwide gathered in Lagos, Nigeria, for the Second World Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture in 1977. Nance was there to document it and her images will be published in the book Last Day in Lagos.
  • In Les Rochers Fauves, French photographer Clément Chapillon documents "the clashing, at times incomprehensible, feelings caused by the Greek island of Amorgos's remoteness and almost untouched wilderness," Devid Gualandris writes.
  • Jim Kasson tests the Leica Q2 Monochrom, XCD 38 on X2D, Monochrome Foliage after reading a thread about using the XCD 38mm lens on the X2D as a street photography setup. "The idea has some merit," he writes. "In auto racing, there used to be a saying: 'You can't beat cubic inches.' In cameras, it seems to be, 'You can't beat linear resolution.'"

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