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 photographing elves, American symbols, mirrorless lenses and Weegee.

  • In Water Sprites, Fairies and Elves, Oh My, Kerri MacDonald talks to Bego Antón about her five year project to photograph the elves, fairies, unicorns, huldufolk, trolls, beach dwarfs, water sprites, mountain spirits and ghosts of Iceland.
  • French photographer Philippe Blayo has been Exploring the Last Remaining American Symbols. "For this particular series," he says, "I wanted to highlight those symbols and situations that remind us of the glorious past and that are desperately trying to continue existing in this new world."
  • In Another Problem for the Duopoly, Thom Hogan writes, "If I were an executive at Canon or Nikon, I'd be worried silly about lens availability as I try to move into the mirrorless ILC market." Unlike the dSLR market, the mirrorless market has open systems when it comes to lens mounts.
  • Flash: The Making of Weegee the Famous by Christopher Bonanos is the first comprehensive biography of New York news photographer Arthur Fellig aka Weegee. We featured him in a March 2104 matinee.

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