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 Mette Lampcov, Leo Jacob, documenting civil rights struggles, artificial light and Wikipedia.

  • In The Untold Story of California's San Joaquin Valley, Ellyn Kail presents the work of California-based documentary photographer Mette Lampcov whose ongoing project Water to Dust deals with the effects of climate change.
  • In Patrons of NYC, Leo Jacob, who is the director of sales and marketing at the Bowery Hotel, responds to the New York Is Dead panic with homage "to those who have illuminated New York with their passion." Each of the individuals answers three questions below their portrait. "Upon its completion, the book will highlight restaurants, storefronts and industries that are operating through the pandemic," he says.
  • Chris Gampat provides A Look at Five Photographers Documenting Civil Rights Struggles. They include Kacper Zapalowski, Adam Wold, Xyza Cruz Bacani, JD Barnes and Josué Rivas.
  • Dan Havlik lists Eight Great Strobe Flash and LED Continuous Lights for Studio Photography. "We, obviously, couldn't include every brand or product in this strobe and LED lighting buying guide, but we did select a variety of lights at varying price points that we feel are the cream of the crop when it comes to illuminating your subjects in the studio," he writes.
  • Wikipedia Is Turning 20 today. " Our celebration will include remarks from community members about how they have seen the movement grow over the 20 years and their wishes for the future, as well as from the founder of Wikipedia Jimmy Wales and the Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation Katherine Maher," organizers of the YouTube party noted.

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