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 stilts, the Black Sea, starlings, Ken Van Sickle, Dixie Dixon and GIMP.

  • An Ode to Stilt Walking Shepherds presents a series of images by the photography duo Hill & Aubrey "that act as a fashionable ode."
  • The Black Sea Series highlights the work of Istanbul-based photographer Susan Petas. "I'd be very happy if I can ignite anything in people through my work because that's what will eventually open up space for discussion," she says. "That's what we need so much."
  • Alan Taylor presents 25 photos of The Murmurations of Starlings. An amazing phenomenon which driverless cars can only hope to emulate <g>.
  • In A Photographer's Insider View of Bohemian Life, Jordan Teicher explores 87-year-old Ken Van Sickle's first photo book Ken Van Sickle: Photography. "I just want to keep doing what I'm doing," he said. The image of the kids with paper airplanes is unforgettable. And that's just one of the 140 images in the book.
  • Hillary Grigonis interviews fashion and lifestyle photographer Dixie Dixon. "I think my biggest advice for working with models is to not pose them," she warns. "Honestly, just guide them and tell them your vision first and the feeling you want to evoke."
  • In GIMP and GEGL in 2018, the team looks back at 2018 and then forward to outline future work on GIMP, GEGL and babl. GIMP is the free image manipulation software for photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

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