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 season of harvests, the persecuted, a traveling cat, an artist's statement, Kuching and Peruvian lilies.

  • In Fall Is in the Air, Alan Taylor presents 35 photos of "the season of harvests, festivals, migrations, winter preparations, and, of course, spectacular foliage." More to come, he promises.
  • In Prayers of the Persecuted Around the World, James Estrin explores the work of Monika Bulaj, who has spent 30 years "documenting persecuted religious minorities around the world." Her photographs of Sufis in northern Africa, Christians in the Middle East, Tibetan Buddhist monks, Old Believers in Eastern Europe, Voudou practitioners in Haiti and Hasids in Galilee are featured in her new book, Where Gods Whisper.
  • Dibs the Traveling Cat is Derrick Story's tale of escaping the Santa Rosa fires. It hasn't been easy and it isn't over yet.
  • In My Photography in a Nutshell, Jim Kasson tells us what he did when he had to write one of those artist's statements accompanied by six images.
  • Robin Wong was Roaming Kuching's Streets With the Canon EOS M6 in some lousy weather. But he got some great shots.
  • It Starts With a Petal and Ends With a Twist of Fate, writes Harold Davis about his latest project photographing Peruvian lilies. The images undergo quite a transformation thanks to his creative use of LAB manipulations.

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