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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Defrozo, Paul Kitagaki Jr., the Subway Inn and prison for a celebrity photographer.

  • Defrozo is Demetrio Fortman's idea of what a photographer needs from the Web to manage their workflow and business both. The current beta offers mobile-friendly Web sites, downloadable client galleries and a cloud image library with more modules on the way. Free and pro accounts are available.
  • In Moving Photographs of Japanese American Internees, Then and Now, Mother Jones highlights a few of Sacramento Bee senior photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr.'s modern portraits of a few of the 120,000 Japanese Americans interned during World War II and photographed then by Dorothea Lange, among others.
  • In A New York Dive Bar's Last Call, David Gonzalez highlights 24 images by Timothy Fadek, a former patron who returned to document the last days of the Subway Inn bar and its demolition.
  • Aurelien Breeden reports, "A French court has sentenced a celebrity photographer to three years in prison for swindling the L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt out of millions of euros." François-Marie Banier had been "accused him of exploiting the heiress's diminished mental state to obtain millions of euros in gifts, artworks and other favors."
