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 the Oscars, the Amazon, mirrorless cameras, a 1965 Cadillac and Lynsey Addario.

  • Matt Fidler presents a selection of images from the Oscars 2022 with links to three stories covering the event, listing the winners and showing the stars arriving.
  • In Flora, Fauna, and the Occasional Flash, Joe McNally continues his Amazon jungle trip "after three cancellations and two and a half years of waiting for the world to open again." The herd of photographers with long lenses is particularly wild.
  • In A Q&A for All the Holdouts Out There, Scott Kelby answers 15 questions about mirrorless cameras. "I hate to be the one to tell you," he observes, "but you already own a mirrorless camera. It's in your phone."
  • Andrew Molitor has Something to Look At again. This one is a 1965 Cadillac and a woman in a beehive from the pages of Vogue. It was attributed to Eggleston but it's by Gene Laurents. Which makes all the difference, Molitor says, to Dr. John Edwin Mason, a professor of history.
  • In Photographing the Reality of War (gift link), Emmett Lindner interviews Lynsey Addario about "her experiences on the ground and how she communicates with her subjects during difficult moments." She has been in Ukraine since February. "I often focus on civilians and women and children because for me, those are the victims of war because they're not participating in the fight, they're just the innocent victims who end up losing their homes and losing their belongings and losing family members only because of decisions that are made on their behalf," she begins.

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