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 East African Photography Awards, Civil War photography, transforming reality, Generative AI and the Nikon Photo Contest.

  • Sarah Gilbert presents the winners of the East African Photography Awards which include projects on the war in Ethiopia, urban development in Kenya and climate change in Tanzania. This year single image categories were introduced as well.
  • In Bodies, Bodies, Bodies: Civil War Photography in the 1800s, Melissa Casas provides images that show "how photographing a deadly war led to advancements in medicine." And editor's note warns, "Although this article is educational, its images might be intense for some."
  • In Transforming Reality Part 2: Three Different Workflows, Kevin Raber explains "how my work changed from being about believable photographs to being transformations of reality."
  • Scott Belsky discusses Bringing the Next Wave of Artificial Intelligence to Creative Cloud, particularly in Photoshop and Lightroom (and in the context of Adobe's Content Authenticity Initiative standards). "We see Generative AI as a hyper-competent creative assistant," he writes. "It will multiply what creators can achieve by presenting new images and alternative approaches, but it can never replace what we value in art: human imagination, an idiosyncratic style and a unique personal story."
  • Nikon has announced that entries for the Nikon Photo Contest will be accepted starting Oct. 27 at 1 p.m. The theme of the Photo Competition is "Beloved," which should express individual priorities from a variety of perspectives. The theme of the Short Film Competition is "Next Steps," which should express further growth and future evolution. Deadline is Feb. 13, 2023.

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