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. This time we look at the East coast storms, diners, 19th century street photography, Charles-Frederick Ouellet, Martin Parr's advice and a visual trend analysis.

  • Here's what that East coast storm looked like from NOAA's GOES-16 satellite as it captured it yesterday at 16:22 UTC:
  • In A Race to Photograph the City's Disappearing Diners, John Leland presents 14 photos from Arthur Riley's project to photograph every diner in the five boroughs. She's covered 200 so far with between 60 and 75 to go. "I always order the matzo ball soup," she says.
  • Christopher Jobson presents 19th Century Street Photography captured by a concealed vest camera by the young Fredrik Carl Mülertz Størmer.
  • Charles-Frederick Ouellet depicts life at sea in Le Naufrage, his monochrome photo series about life along the St. Lawrence River.
  • Martin Parr offers some Advice to Documentary Photographers. Our favorite line: "If you can't explain what you're doing in one sentence, it's hardly worth doing."
  • Following its Visual Trends predictions for 2018, Adobe has published its analysis of its first trend of Silence and Solitude, a growing demand for images that convey comfort and regeneration.

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