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 a migrant's journey, Cicala's update of his Sigma 24-35mm test, a new photo rule at Harvard and an Artnet fashion photography auction.

  • Alan Taylor presents 45 images in A Migrant's Journey: 1 Week, 30,000 People, 2,500 Miles. "The number of refugees landing on European shores this year has already topped 380,000, according to the UN," he writes. And not everybody made it.
  • In Sigma 24-35mm f2 DG HSM Art MTF Curves and Sample Variation, Roger Cicala admits, "Sometimes, though, it seems the true purpose of my life is to serve as a warning to others." Turns out his previous one-copy report tested the worst copy. He apologizes to Sigma and updates his results after testing 10 copies of the lens.
  • Laura Wagner reports on a New Rule For Harvard Tourists. Take a photo of the students through a window and it "will result in termination of your visit and loss of future tour visit privileges." Stanford has its own rules, Wagner points out, which may not apply to the band.
  • Through Sept. 17, Artnet Auctions invites your live bids for its Fashion Photography auction, which includes works Ormond Gigli, Mario Testino, Horst P. Horst, Lillian Bassman, Barry Lategan, Terry O'Neill, Bert Stern and others.

More to come...
