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 Rawiya, the Wagstaff Collection, Adam Marelli and La Noir Images.

  • James Estrin talks to documentary photographer Tasneem Alsultan about The Hidden Stories of Arab Women and the collective Rawiya, which is exhibiting at Open Source Gallery in Brooklyn. The piece is accompanied by 26 images from the female Middle Eastern photographers of Rawiya.
  • In Finding Beauty in Unexpected Places: The Wagstaff Collection of Photographs, Curator Paul Martineau discusses Sam Wagstaff's forward-thinking mind, keen eye and idiosyncratic taste with Sarah Zabrodski. Includes five images worth a peek.
  • In The Precision of Kyudo and the Art of Photography, Adam Marelli makes the connection between the Kyudo archers and Cartier-Bresson. He worked with a Leica because the shutter was quieter than his Hasselblad. "There is an easy analogy that can be drawn between the bow and arrows and a camera," he says. "A good archer can shoot anything, from arrows that cost $500 a set to a set of aluminum arrows that cost less than $50."
  • Chris Gampat of the Phoblographer has launched a Kickstarter campaign to start La Noir Images, a publication devoted to black-and-white photography.
