We like the quirk, and that’s what photographer Enoch Ku captured while cruising around his hometown of Sacramento, CA. A set of hedges cut into the shape of playing card suits, a manhole cover ambiguously lined up with a street’s divider lines, playful shadows cast by a bike rack. Ordinary Sacramento is the name of the project.
Also in this episode: Tim Kane creates a photo/video package of the isolated town of Yellowknife in the Northwestern Territories of Canada which closed itself off to all outsiders during the pandemic to protect its indigenous elders, project images of the fallen on the Brooklyn Bridge, Rally Studios’ amazing FPV drone in a bowling alley, Hannah McKay captures the vigil and protest for Sarah Everard, and Nadine Ijewere lands the cover of Vogue US as the first Black female photographer.
