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 Joe Perri, the Rohingya, Daido Moriyama, a Flickr policy update and the recent Supreme Court copyright ruling.

  • In Joe Perri Captures the Chaos and Complexity of Mexico City, the American photographer remembers, "I soon realized that this complex, always changing megalopolis is a study in contrasts and charm and there I found harmony among it all." We were amused to see none of his photos have any detail in the shadows.
  • Miss Rosen presents A Devastating Portrait of Genocide in Myanmar by Bengali photographer Saiful Huq Omi, who has published 136 -- I Am Rohingya. "I now know how it feels to have a bayonet at your throat at three in the morning in the middle of a deep forest. I now know how it feels to almost drown in the deep blue sea and how long it takes for three broken ribs to heal," he writes in the book.
  • Diane Smyth reports Daido Moriyama Wins the 2019 Hasselblad Award. The award comes with £80,700 snf a show at the Hasselblad Center in Gothenburg this autumn. A new book of his work will also be published by Walther König. "I've been constantly walking for 55 years now," Moriyama said. "I walk, I encounter, I shoot."
  • Flickr has posted an Update on Creative Commons Licenses and 'in Memoriam' Accounts. The company will protect all public Creative Commons works and grant an "in memorium" status to preserve the public works of deceased members.
  • In Sound the Alarm? Registration Required to File Infringement Lawsuit, Carolyn Wright considers Monday's unanimous Supreme Court ruling on requiring copyright registration to file an infringement case. "This new ruling doesn't change much for photographers," she writes, partly because "most infringers stop infringing when you give them a cease and desist notice." And with a three-year statute of limitations, you have time to register, negotiate and sue.

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