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 Jack Davison, Harold Davis, Drew Smith, Mike Johnston, zooms vs. primes and behind the scenes.

  • In Steeped in Mystery, Stephanie Wade showcases recent work by London photographer Jack Davison. He creates "abstract, surreal, and compelling work from the nuances of daily life," she writes.
  • In Dahlia Just Dahlia Dahlia, Darling!, Harold Davis presents three versions of a white dahlia on a light box, all of the elegant in their simplicity.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Drew Smith about his shoot for the Patagonia Fall Journal 2020. "What concerns me most is that if we continue to undo our work of protecting these vital ecosystems, climate change will continue more rapidly and our quality of life will be affected," he says.
  • We enjoyed Mike Johnston's report My Cherry Spice Rack: A Visit to Andrew's Wood Design. He used a Fujifil X-H1 with a 23mm Fujinon to illustrate the piece.
  • Kirk Tuck considers Zooms Versus Primes from a 2020 perspective. "I'm starting to wonder if the only reasons to own prime lenses anymore are for situations that call for very fast apertures," he writes.
  • Dave Williams explains the importance of Going BTS (behind the scenes) for marketing your skills. "Our audience appreciates seeing what we're up to, even if it's something as silly as snapping a selfie," he writes.

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