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 the Movement Voter Project, Anna Walker Skillman, Photo London Digital 2020, Jeff Lipsky, entropy, Sony camera technology and Pete Souza.

  • Grace Ebert reports More Than 150 Photographers Are Selling $150 Prints to Combat Voter Suppression, including Cindy Sherman, Ed Ruscha and Alec Soth. The Movement Voter Project is targeting 42 local organizations fighting voter suppression in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
  • In Pace and Patience, Cat Lachowskyj interviews Anna Walker Skillman, owner and director of Jackson Fine Art, a juror for LensCulture's Black and White Photography awards. The piece is illustrated with photographs from a variety of artists (some even in, um, color).
  • Matt Fidler shares a few of the best images from Photo London Digital 2020, which runs online through Oct. 18. As an older sibling, we really like the last one.
  • Suzanne Sease presents the work of Jeff Lipsky whose personal project on fathers and sons was inspired when he was assigned to shoot best-selling author Norman Ollestad and his son Noah surfing together. "A dad and daughter project is currently in the works!" the father of two boys and a girl says.
  • Kirk Tuck, who turns 65 this month, shares Some Thoughts on Managing Entropy. "I have less tolerance for people who waste my time and even less patience for unnecessary meetings and phone calls," he writes. Right on, brother.
  • In Sony on the A7SIII and Emerging Technology, Roger Cicala and Zach Sutton talk with Mark Weir, senior manager in technology and marketing at Sony about three newly released cameras: the A7SIII, A7C and ZV-1.
  • Rachel Maddow alerts viewers that MSNBC will air the documentary The Way I See It about presidential photographer Pete Souza on Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. EDT, shortly after it opens in theaters.

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