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 Ying Ang, Kremer/Johnson, Dasha Pears, Global Billboard winners, waterfalls, a video and five new Explorers of Light.

  • The Quickening is Ying Ang's new photobook "referencing sleepless nights, the melancholy haze of new motherhood and the psychological space created by bringing a new life into the world." Daniel Boetker-Smith writes, "The book is quite floppy as it has no traditional hard front or back cover and is large (approx. 9x11 inches), meaning that it's not something you can pick up and flick through easily -- this book requires purpose and a level of commitment from its reader."
  • Suzanne Sease highlights the personal project of Kremer/Johnson at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center. During five visits in 2020 they show divers who ranged in ability from beginners to Olympic hopefuls. "Strobes were used to fill in shadows and create a more illustrated style. The Phase One IQ3 was the chosen camera for its ability to mix strobes with a 1/2000 shutter speed," they note.
  • Grace Ebert presents the Minimal Color-Centric Scenes devised by Dasha Pears to "celebrate myriad psychological states and phenomena sometimes deemed unsightly, capturing their beauty and inherent transcience with a surreal twist."
  • Ellyn Kail shows recent winning entries in Feature Shoot's Global Billboard Project. "Sarah Wouters, Julia Wimmerlin and Felicia Simion will each take over our current billboard on Manhattan's 9th Avenue, just across from the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, for a week," she writes.
  • Dahlia Ambrose showcases 29 Enchanting Photos of Waterfalls with links to Photzy publications that explain how they're made.
  • Kirk Tuck decided to make A Quick Video to go along with his usual handout to orient 50 subjects for individual portrait sessions. "My intention with the video is to make sure everyone has the information they need to get scheduled and get here on time for their sittings," he writes.
  • Canon has added five new photographers to its Explorers of Light program. They include Laretta Houston, Krisanne Johnson, Natalie Keyssar, Blair Bunting and Keith Ladzinski. You can explore all 32 of them at the link above.

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