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 Dolorès Marat, iPhone Photography Awards, the Middle East, Maria Svarbova, Anastasia Samoylova, the Aurora Borealis, urban photos and that cheap $4,000 camera.

  • In Tangled Up in Blues: Dreamlike Colours, Mee-Lai Stone presents images from new exhibition of Dolorès Marat's explorations of the rainbow, "which seem to capture dreams, illusions and enigmas."
  • Winners of the iPhone Photography Awards have been announced. Grand Prize winner Ivan Silva of Mexico won the Photographer of the Year Award for his image, Heroe, of a young boy on top of the world.
  • The Associate Press presents the Month in Pictures: Middle East comprised of the most compelling images made or published by Associated Press photographers in the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan in July.
  • Kate Mothes presents Maria Svarbova's images of figures wearing bathing suits and caps within the colorfully tiled, cavernous spaces of vintage swimming pools.
  • In Image Cities, Gregory Eddi Jones interviews Anastasia Samoylova about her project of that name which visits 17 of the world's most significant urban centers. "I chose my 17 cities based on a list published by Globalization and World Cities Research Network, where they are assessed through four criteria: accountancy, advertising, banking/finance and law," she says.
  • Hillary Grigonis explains How to Photograph the Aurora Borealis. "Perhaps one of the best reasons to photograph the Northern Lights is this -- the camera will see them sooner and with more color than the human eye," she writes.
  • Dahlia Ambrose collects Powerful Urban Photos With Tips on How to Take Your Own. "Practice the art of seeing things differently and you are sure to capture some stunning urban photographs," she writes.
  • In More About That Cheap $4,000 Camera, Mike Johnston suggests "there was a point a few years ago when it was generally agreed that the cameramakers had decided on a new strategy to counter declining sales: if they were going to sell fewer cameras, then they would demand considerably higher prices for them." He's not happy about that.

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