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 street photography winners, Katie Orlinksy, Misan Harriman, success, Brandon King, miniatures and an online workshop.

  • LensCulture has published images by the winners and finalists of its Street Photography Awards 2020. "Great photographs and series from 'normal life' just a few months ago now seem charged with new poignancy as they reflect the liveliness and excitement of human interactions before street life stopped for a while," the publication notes.
  • After 20 years of shooting protests, Katie Orlinksy says, This One Feels Different. "This is a movement, not a series of protests and within weeks it has already put politicians on the defensive, pressuring them to enact reforms that have been long overdue," she writes.
  • Misan Harriman, who took up photography only three years ago, talks to Marigold Warner about Photographing London's BLM Protests. "I look for hope and empathy more than anything else," he says.
  • Dave Williams catalogs The 'Secret to Success' List with eight dictums to inspire you. "The most important thing is to have fun and if we practice hard and achieve the most we possibly can, it becomes less stressful and easier to have fun," he writes.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Brandon King about editing his protest photos. "I vividly remember sifting through possible photos to edit following the protest and getting chills as I landed on this photo," he comments on his favorite image.
  • In It's a Small World, Jordan Kushins shows how Glasgow photographer David Gilliver creates "epic scenes in miniature." Gilliver says, "My work can sometimes appear to be a little like a one-liner -- fun and amusing -- but the figurines can also be used to powerful effect, providing a commentary on all kinds of subjects with serious messages, too."
  • In Beyond the Single Image, Julieanne Kost outlines the three-session, online Santa Fe Workshop she's conduct in July. "If you can't be online for the live event, you can still register for the live event; paid participants will have 24 hours to access the recorded presentation," she writes. Tuition helps SFW "continue their 30-year legacy -- providing educational, inspirational and often life-changing experiences to the creative community."

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look five years back. And please support our efforts...
