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 Sebastião Salgado, Ryan Jenq, Heiko Kellwig, Kevin Raber and Thom Hogan.

  • In Sebastião Salgado's Stunning Voyage Into Amazônia, Jonathan Jones talks to the 77-year-old photographer about his new book of black and white panoramas. "There’s fish in the rivers, animals in the forest, fruit in the trees," he says. "They live so well. They have so much time to discuss, to sing, to have parties."
  • Stephanie Wade presents the Romance and Melancholia of Brooklyn-based photographer Ryan Jenq's images inspired by art, music, film, and nature. He gets that film look with, well, film.
  • Heiko Kellwig's Filigree Beauties are "a humble tribute to nature itself," the photographer says of his images of groups of butterflies. "I got these wonders of nature from a German collector and taxidermist, who also travels the world extensively and has been collecting rare butterflies and moths for many years," he says. "There are specimens that really do cost thousands of euros." And you thought gear was pricey.
  • Fully vaccinated, Kevin Raber returns to The Palouse with a Sony a7R IV and A1 to conduct a four-person workshop. Meanwhile he presents a few of the shots from last week.
  • In Lies That Live On, Thom Hogan suggests camera manufacturers "lie to the investment community ('pursuing high-end customers'), they lie to customers ('our APS-C products are a full line') and they lie to themselves ('we've got this figured out.')." The conventional cure, we seem to recall, is to say three Hail Marys for each lie.

More to come! But we're still not updating our Calendar with new openings because while the vaccine has offered protection against the worst Covid outcomes we are still wary about this deadly disease (but we're constantly evaluating the situation). Meanwhile, here's a look five years back. And please support our efforts...
