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 a conviction in New York, Tehachapi, Joao Lutz, Night Fever, repair or replace and Kodak digicams.

  • The Guardian curates photos from The Day a Former U.S. President Was Convicted. The Associated Press takes a look at The Past Seven Weeks of the trial.
  • Kate Mothes features French photographer and street artist JR's Tehachapi, a film about his visit to the prison in October 2019 when he embarked on a portrait project with the help of more than two dozen residents. Here's the trailer:

  • Heidi Volpe talks to Joao Lutz about The Documentary Program at the International Center of Photography. "Photography offered me a new way to capture moments and emotions more intimately and immediately," the filmmaker tells her. His project Baptism "began from my fascination with the resilience and dedication of open water swimmers in Brighton Beach, New York, during the winter months."
  • Dale Berning Sawa reviews Night Fever edited by the Barbican’s Shanay Jhaveri. "It is full of depictions of the night by artists and filmmakers, most of whom have homed in on not what the night looks like but the way it feels," she writes.
  • Thom Hogan reflects on The 'Repair, Replace, or Upgrade' Dilemma. "There's little doubt that the dSLR options are going to get fewer and fewer over time," he writes. He cites the Nikon D500 as an example of what he considers still the best APS-C camera but no longer available new.
  • Kehl Bayern notes Kodak Cameras Are Selling Well in Japan. Kodak cameras, like the Friendly Zoom FZ55, have jumped from a 5 percent market share to 22.5 percent total market share in just a year, displacing Canon, Sony and Fujifilm. The Kodak digicams are actually made by JK Imaging LTD, holder of a licensing agreement.

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