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 Sabine Weiss, French labor law protests, McNally in Ireland and Revel reminder.

  • Carole Naggar is Rediscovering the Genius of Sabine Weiss, the Last Humanist Photographer with 12 black-and-white images from the 1950s. "Weiss' photographs have not aged because they retain that mystery and resist interpretation, maybe in part because they are taken in low light," Naggar writes of the 92-year-old photographer. "I love mist," Weiss admits, "and I loathe sunshine."
  • Alan Taylor presents 31 disturbing images in Monthslong Protests and Strikes in France Over Labor Law Changes. "France's Socialist government has pushed through proposals that will lengthen the work week to 48 hours from 35 and make it easier for employers to hire and fire workers, despite strong opposition in Parliament and from the public," he explains.
  • Joe McNally is going Back to Ireland to work with the Irish Professional Photographer's Association. In his blog post he remembers some wonderful times there, including his proposal and workshop with the author Frank McCourt, of whom he took a memorable portrait.
  • Just a reminder that June 24 is the last day you can download your photos and videos from the Revel service. The downloader application [MW] will help you download all of your Revel libraries to your computer. You can then import the downloaded files into Lightroom or upload them to any other service.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
