Four weeks ago, photos surfaced depicting some state troopers arrayed behind a stash of drugs and weapons, apparently seized in Camden, with one of them holding aloft a Puerto Rican flag. At the time, Latino activists decried the images as disrespectful, and the state police opened an investigation. On Tuesday, Camden City Council weighed in on the issue. Councilman Luis Lopez, who is Puerto Rican, introduced a resolution, which passed unanimously, encouraging a thorough inquiry, which "will go a long way in helping allay community concerns.

The court was shocked, shocked, to find topless photos of a beautiful celeb in a French magazine. Actually, "brutal" was how the tribunal in Nanterre, France, described the pics of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge , née Kate Middleton , that appeared Friday in the magazine Closer. The court, responding to a complaint by Kate and hub Prince William , ordered the mag on Tuesday to turn over all digital copies of the pics within 24 hours and cease further publication of them. The publishers will be fined $13,100 for every day they delay.

It started at 7 p.m. as "the Negro swimmers were quitting the pool on schedule and the white swimmers were going in. " Some whites dunked a 14-year-old black into the public pool at 26th and Master streets and that started the North Philadelphia race riots of July 1941. It took 300 policemen to quiet things down. It's all there for anyone to read in the envelope marked "Riots: Race. Philadelphia, Prior to 1949. " A short walk away, in the file marked "Philadelphia: Organ Grinders" is a series of 8-X-10 glossy photos of Antonio Campanoro of S. 7th Street and his monkey at a "dental operation to make him (the monkey)

In 1938, fresh out of Lehigh University with a degree in economics, young Bill Gottlieb snared a job in the ad department of the Washington Post. "In order to keep my hand in at writing, and to spread the gospel of jazz," a much older Bill Gottlieb was reminiscing the other day, he began to submit a weekly jazz column to the Post's Sunday editions. For the first few weeks, they assigned a staff photographer to go along on his late-night/early-morning rounds of the places where jazz was played in the D.C. area.

In their 60 pictures on view at Haverford College, Venetian photographers Carlo Jacobi and Orestre Bertani use working methods that make other photographers look superficial by comparison. Their pictures rely on the witnesslike ability of the camera. They contain exquisitely rendered documentary detail. Jacobi and Bertani give constant attention to information and the use of straightforward, familiar forms and conventions as well as to composition that includes human figures going about their daily rounds.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - When he was shot, Trayvon Martin was not the baby-faced boy in the photo that has been on front pages across the country. And George Zimmerman wasn't the beefy-looking figure in the widely published mugshot. Both photos are a few years old and no longer entirely accurate. Yet they may have helped shape initial public perceptions of the deadly shooting. "When you have such a lopsided visual comparison, it just stands to reason that people would rush to judgment," said Kenny Irby, who teaches visual journalism at the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank in St. Petersburg, Fla. The most widely seen picture of Martin, released by his family and evidently taken a few years ago, shows a smiling, round-cheeked youngster in a red T-shirt.

'Documentary Pix: Philadelphia, a Century of Change," now at the Free Library of Philadelphia, is a vivid reminder of the rich trove of images in the central library's ever-expanding print and picture collection. Photos spanning the 20th century - of buildings, neighborhoods, and people, with special attention to the years 1900 and 1950 - are the central attraction. They provide a substantial introduction to a complex period in Philadelphia's history, from a stunning 1950 aerial view of Center City to the proud and well-groomed surviving half of a twin townhouse beginning a new life shorn of its old brick-and-mortar sidekick.

Prowling the back alleys of the city in search of photo galleries (which is getting harder and harder with all the trash piling up), I fail to find any new ones. But I have come across something Philadelphia has lots of: restaurants. True, but irrelevant, you say? Wrong, for restaurants happen to be a great source of wall space. And a lot of them fill it with photography. We photophiles would love to think that the city's restaurateurs are grand proponents of the photographic medium, taking up the slack where the galleries often fail us. But the art shows that hang in restaurants are little more than afterthoughts to the owners, proud as they may be of them.

Marc Okkonen, the author who gave us the definitive book on "Baseball Uniforms of the 20th Century" last year, is back with a Christmas gift idea for baseball fans of more recent vintage. His new book is "Baseball Memories, 1950-59, An Illustrated Scrapbook of Baseball's Fabulous 50s. " And "scrapbook" is the perfect description for Okkonen's latest work because he uses bits and scraps from countless publications and other sources to provide us with a photograph of virtually every player who saw any action at all in the majors during the 1950s.
