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 Arranmore, Istanbul, the Magnum Square Print sale, Texture vs. Clarity, the Panasonic Lumix GX8, Opera Omnia, Bergamo and the 2020 Inge Morath Award.

  • Irish landscape photographer Peter McCabe shares some images from his Travels to Arranmore. "Clouds hung low, a ghostly coastline drifted in and out of view," he writes. "Brief glimpses of sea-arches and towering headlands crafted by the hand of pounding Atlantic were enough to get the creative juices flowing."
  • In Memories of a City, Moscow photographer Katya Alagich explores Istanbul in the winter, capturing color images that avoid appearing desolate. "For my January visit, I had prepared myself for dark winter days, snowflakes and a season devoid of flowers. But the weather turned my plans upside down," she says.
  • The Magnum Square Print Sale offers a 6x6-inch signed or estate-stamped print for $100. "Turning Points, the April Square Print Sale in collaboration with The Everyday Projects, brings together a selection of over 120 images by international visual artists. The participating photographers looked over their personal archives in search of images relating to or capturing events that changed the course of history, society, a life or a practice."
  • Scott Kelby explores The Difference Between Lightroom's Texture and Clarity Sliders. Actually, it's Adobe Camera Raw's sliders in Lightroom. You'll find the same sliders in Photoshop's Camera Raw.
  • Kirk Tuck acquires a Panasonic Lumix GX8 as what he calls a flexible daily user camera. "Am I crazy for buying a cheap, used camera during such a frightening financial crisis? Naw."
  • Ming Thein reflects on Popular Reactions to Art after attending touring the Leonardo Da Vinci reproduction exhibition Opera Omnia, 17 images made on transparent canvas and backlit.
  • Simon Bainbridge points out the 100 Photographs for Bergamo sale ends at midnight tonight CET (a few hours from the time this is being published). Fifty international photographers have joined the 100 Italian photographers in the effort to support the city stricken by the coronavirus crisis.
  • The Magnum Foundation is now accepting entries for the 2020 Inge Morath Award, a $5,000 grant given to a woman photographer under the age of 30 to support the completion of a long-term documentary project.

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