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 David Godlis, Melissa Schriek, Shakespeare and Company, Andrew Molitor, Sammy Davis Jr., Sophia Loren and copyright roundtables.

  • The Guardian presents images from David Godlis's new book, Godlis Streets culled from his New York street photography over two decades.
  • In Our Connection With the Spaces Around Us, Devid Gualandris presents images from Dutch photographer Melissa Schriek's new book The City is a Choreography. For the project, Schriek traveled to a number of cities between 2017 and 2020, including Berlin and Los Angeles, "to capture the connection between urban spaces and the strangers that reside with them."
  • Shakespeare and Company Bookshop in Paris asks customers for support as France enters lockdown again with a series of images of the cultural shrine. Sales have been down nearly 80 percent since March.
  • Andrew Molitor found Something to Look At, a photo by Fin Costello of Eddie Van Halen. "We should all have a moment like this one, at least once," he writes.
  • Sammy Davis Jr.'s Camera Is for Sale on eBay, Chris Gampat reports. Well, one of his cameras. But the piece dives into Davis's pursuit of photography, which is even more interesting than this particular Konica.
  • Xan Brooks interviews Sophia Loren and her son Edoardo Ponti on the release of the Netflix drama The Life Ahead, which Ponti directed. "The body changes. The mind does not," the 86-year-old actress says. Ponti makes an interesting point, too. "Honestly, it was never about stardom or glamour," he reflects on his parents' life. "It was always about the craft. My parents, if anything, were more like artisans. It was like they were a pair of Italian shoemakers." We are all shoemakers, after all.
  • Carolyn Wright reports the U.S. Copyright Office will hold Online Public Roundtables for State Sovereign Immunity Study. See the story to apply to participate in the Zoom roundtables. Otherwise you'll be able to sing up to observe them shortly.

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