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 movie theaters, lost photos found, Michael Zagaris, Excire Analytics, Chernobyl and more Z 9 tests.

  • What Remains of American Movie Theaters is documented in Movie Theaters, a new photobook with images by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. The two French photographers "have been traveling the U.S. since 2005 capturing the torn vinyl seating, chipped paint and sometimes wildly transformed architecture of more than 200 shuttered venues," Grace Ebert writes.
  • In A Discovery of Holocaust-Era Photos, Greg Allen tells the story of how rare photographs were rediscovered three decades ago on the streets of New York's Greenwich Village. And finally found the family they came from.
  • In 49ers Team Photographer Has Thoughts on the Rivalry, Michael Zagaris talks about his 49 year coverage of the team. With some classic photos.
  • Excire has announced that the €39 Excire Analytics is now available as an extension to Excire Foto, providing "valuable insights into your photographic work" based on Exif information, ratings and image content. An Excire Foto license is required to use Excire Analytics. If you buy Excire Foto now, add the code Analytics00 to get it at no additional charge.
  • Zach Sutton recounts How Philip Grossman Uncovers the Mysteries of Chernobyl. "With 14 different Chernobyl trips under his belt, Philip has become one of the most renowned and experienced experts when it comes to exploring the abandoned region, leading to his work on Discovery Science Channel's Mysteries of the Abandoned: Chernobyl's Deadly Secrets and his involvement in HBO's Chernobyl," Sutton writes.
  • In Nikon Z 9 RN, FWC, PDR, Jim Kasson continues his test of the new mirrorless flagship. This chapter covers read noise, full well capacity and photographic dynamic range. With implications for preferred exposure settings in the conclusion.

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