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 the National Geographic Photo Contest winners, Korea's comfort women, Time Inc.'s contract rights grab and Jardine on holiday with headhunters.

  • Alan Taylor presents the Winners of the 2015 National Geographic Photo Contest. Grand Prize Winner James Smart will receive $10,000 for his shot of a rare anti-cyclonic tornado.
  • In Korea's Comfort Women: The Fight to Be Heard, James Estrin spotlights the work of photojournalist Yunghi Kim who, in 1995, made it her business to tell their story, documenting the lives of four women who lived together in a basement apartment in Seoul. "People need to know what really happened," she said. It could, she acknowledged, have happened to anyone's daughter.
  • Photographers are resisting Time Inc.'s contract rights grab by not returning signed contracts with the new offer. Time is countering by sending automated emails with the new contract. "I believe that any photographer who would consider accepting these terms must have little understanding of this industry and will surely regret it later on in their career," said photographer Henry Leutwyler.
  • George Jardine posts a gallery of his travels with "the last actual headhunters" in Wild Photography Holidays, Assam & Nagaland 2015.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
