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 a festival of photojournalism, Masahisa Fukase's cat, color, odd apples, interior photography and starting late in life.

  • Matt Fidler presents images from the 33rd edition of Perpignan's Festival of Photojournalism that hosts over 25 exhibitions around the French city through Sept. 26.
  • Grace Ebert features the Candid Black-And-White Portraits Masahisa Fukase took of his cat Sasuke. Atelier EXB has published 123 of the images in a new 192-page book. The 1986 book The Solitude of Ravens put Fukase on the map but after a fall in 1992, he went into a coma at the age of 58 and was kept on life support until his death in 2012.
  • Harold Davis offers his Cymbidium Orchid and Sidewalk as examples of images that "would not work without color."
  • Brooklyn-based photographer William Mullan has published Odd Apples, a new photobook. "The 128-page book contains 90 apple still life portraits that represent four years and three seasons of researching, reading, finding, tasting and photographing," he writes. Each limited edition of the book also includes a print of the Hidden Rose apple, one of the first portraits taken in the series.
  • Light Stalking's Interior Photography for Beginners lists a few helpful tips for real estate photographers. "Navigating the do's and don'ts of interior photography may not be a walk in the park, but it's just a matter of time with proper direction and practice."
  • After a career as an engineer at Rover, Anne Youngson published her first novel Meet Me at the Museum at age 70. In A New Start After 60, she shares her perspective on starting later in life. "You have a better sense of yourself as you get older," she says. "You begin to understand where you fit and you are not so anxious about who you are and what people think of you. It is liberating. Actually, I'm a big fan of old age. I think everybody should experience it."

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