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 Irving Penn's platinum prints, humpback whales, influences and Jeremy Lange.

  • In Irving Penn Reinterpreted, by Irving Penn, Rena Silverman talks to Jeff Rosenheim, the curator in charge of the department of photographs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, about the photographer's exhibit at the Met. A visit to the George Eastman House inspired him to reprint his work as platinum prints using a process he transformed to his own preferences. His apprentice Keith Trumbo said, "His platinum prints are melted onto aluminum, which is like an eighth of an inch thick."
  • Giants is Australian photographer Jem Cresswell's series of black-and-white portraits of humpback whales captured over three years in the southern Pacific Ocean.
  • In Discussion Points: Influences, Ming Thein reveals his own influences -- and they aren't all photographers. In fact, he says, they "can be pretty much anything: other photographers, artists in different media, music, a season, muses, objects, locations, even (ahem) hardware."
  • In A Vet Turns to Farming to Heal His Wounds. Jeremy Lange profiles in text and photos the life of Alex Sutton, a decorated U.S. Army veteran who served three tours in Iraq and suffers from PTSD, and his wife Jessica. They were just featured on the Independent Lens production Farmer/Veteran.

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