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 George Etheredge, Sayuri Ichida, Pat Kane, more MTF charts, interesting photographs and the American Photography Open 2019.

  • In A Son of the South's Quiet Photos of a Complex Region, Roger May looks at the work of George Etheredge. "I don't consider myself a southern photographer, but instead a photographer who happened to grow up in the South," Etheredge says.
  • Sayuri Ichida photographs the Japanese ballerina Mayu far from the stage and the spotlights. Dance imposed on the world makes everything look different.
  • Miss Rosen presents A Powerful Portrait of Living Off the Grid in Northern Canada. Pat Kane, a member of the Timiskaming First Nation, photographed the people of Yellowknife, "one of those cities that all Canadians learn about in grade school geography class."
  • Roger Cicala continues his latest MTF series with Just the MTF Charts: Micro 4/3 Lenses. Not all of them, though, just the Olympus 12mm f2.0, Olympus 17mm f1.2 ED Pro, Olympus 75mm f1.8, Panasonic Leica 42.5mm f1.2 OIS, Panasonic Leica 45mm f2.8 DG OIS Macro, Voigtlander 42.5mm f0.95 Nokton. But that's a handful.
  • Kirk Tuck has a few thoughts about what it takes to get Interesting Photographs. Worth remembering the most interesting photographs of all were not taken by the newest equipment. One day maybe, but not yet. Something else is going on.
  • The American Photography Open 2019 is open for entries through Aug. 31. All amateur and professional photographers from all nations are welcome to submit work shot anywhere in the world.

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