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 Cholita's Escaladoras, Patagonia, birds, military camps and infrared on the Fujifilm GFX 50R.

  • Todd Anthony photographs Cholita's Escaladoras who climbed the 22,841-foot Mt. Aconcagua in their "traditional, vibrant, billowing dresses and using their traditional shawls to carry equipment rather than backpacks."
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Jason Thompson about his Patagonia Journal. "Guiding taught me more about understanding empathy and supporting others emotionally and physically," the former mountain guide says. "When photographing, immersing myself in other cultures, viewing my experience through my lens, I try to put myself in my subject's shoes and try to express the emotions that they are feeling."
  • Dave Williams explains what it takes to make photos of Beautiful Birds. "In general, it's a tight crop, exposing the details, such as an attractive plumage or a detailed activity like fishing or building a nest," he writes.
  • In Nside Poland's Military Camps for Children, Ellyn Kail presents images from Natalia Kepesz's latest project, titled Niewybuch, which tells the story of military clubs, summer camps and schools for children. "These kinds of facilities date back to the 1920s, but the photographer says they've grown in popularity in Poland in recent years," she writes.
  • Jim Kasson tries a Nikon 180-400/4 on GFX 50R in Infrared. Going heavy on Dehaze, he likes what he sees.

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