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 climate photographs, Javier Campano, Gregory Eddi Jones, the New York City Marathon, a Dalia X-ray, pinhole photographers, Anthony Barboza, gear acquisition syndrome and a blood moon.

  • Gabrielle Schwarz presents 20 Climate Photographs That Changed the World.
  • The Wandering Eye is Javier Campano's photo project based on his jaunts through various cities. "I like to travel and see things with new eyes: the hotels in a city, with those rooms from which you can see the city from the window; the shop windows and signs; the bars, each with a different name; the markets and book shops," he says.
  • Maali Duzant reviews Promise Land, a photography rebuttal to T.S. Eliot's poem %5FThe Wasteland_. by Gregory Eddi Jones. "Jones' images storm across the spectrum of the medium, devouring the advertising tropes of stock images, with nods to surrealism and the banality of the everyday, rendered in saccharine color washes and haunted by brooding shadow," he writes.
  • Joe McNally surveys Running Through the Years at the New York City Marathon. "I covered it a bunch, through the late '70s, into the '80s and '90s, on film and thence into the 2000's and the digital era," he writes.
  • Harold Davis takes a Dalia X-Ray of a rather small blossom. "In post-production, I converted to LAB color. Next, I used a series of curve adjustments to equalize the various densities in the image," he adds.
  • Feroz Khan curates The Best Pinhole Photographers Making Black and Whites. His list includes Alex Galmeanu, David Cordero, Matthew Pringle, Alan Thoburn and Sharon Harris.
  • In A Wealth of Stories About the Art World, Meg Butler features photographer Anthony Barboza discussing his process and subjects in a new Getty publication called Eye Dreaming.
  • Thom Hogan suggests asking yourself How Long Will You Be Happy? before buying a new camera this year. "If you can't see yourself satisfied with any of the most recent cameras for at least four or five years of photography -- and probably many more than that -- you probably are a GAS addict and are in need of an intervention," he writes.
  • There will be a 'Blood Moon' Total Lunar Eclipse before dawn on Tuesday morning in throughout North America and after sunset in Asia, Australia and the rest of the Pacific. Uranus will be visible just above the moon.

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