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 Steve McCurry, David Zimmerman, Pete Souza and Dylan Buell.

  • In Steve McCurry: I'm a Visual Storyteller Not a Photojournalist, Olivier Laurent talks to McCurry about the recent uproar of his photo editing. "Reflecting on the situation," he says, "even though I felt that I could do what I wanted to my own pictures in an aesthetic and compositional sense, I now understand how confusing it must be for people who think I'm still a photojournalist."
  • Thom Hogan interviews David Zimmerman, CEO of LC Technologies (which supplies the subscription data recovery software accompanying SanDisk cards). "They're a lot of people that think they're pros because they have an expensive camera," Zimmerman says. "But taking care of the memory cards, that should be their number one consideration."
  • In Pete Souza: photographing the real Barack Obama, Jonathan Jones appreciates 16 images that "tell the true story of a presidency that words have failed."
  • Photographer Dylan Buell tells The story of Bradley and why my job is so much more than pushing a button. Photojournalists, he writes, "become a deep, integral part of the community, not just a person with a camera."

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