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 Libya, Mateusz Kowalik, Butterfly Ranunculus, Sara Hylton, Jay Maisel, Adobe AI, the Panasonic G9II and macOS Sonoma.

  • The Guardian presents images of the Deadly Floods in Libya caused by Storm Daniel which has left thousands of people dead or missing after two dams burst in the port city of Derna.
  • Erik Vroons reviews Mateusz Kowalik's Devil's Rib, winner of the second edition of the Star Photobook Dummy Award. Mateusz photographed people who have chosen to live in remote Poland. "The images he makes -- black and white photos vibrating with a pensive mood -- are suggestive while remaining open for interpretation; an approach that is probably closest to the reality of the situation," Vroons writes. "There are no simple facts about this matter."
  • Harold Davis share his Butterfly Ranunculus. "With this image, I was pleased to see the form of the image follow (not function) but the name of the flower; you can see why the varietal was thought to resemble the butterfly," he writes.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Sara Hylton about her images of India for National Geographic. "The way South Asians see the world is both incredibly practical and poetic all at once," she says. "I felt completely thrown into chaos, but also held. I was hooked."
  • Kevin Raber continues his Daily Chat video series with a tour of Jay Maisel's Web site.

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