Diego Lezama has moved to Brazil where he has been granted with a new nationwide campaign for the CNA, a Brazilian government organization that oversees all kinds of agriculture around the country, including rice, soy, corn, coffee, wheat, bean, orange and cotton among others. Diego will be visiting many sites, from the world's most productive sugar cane factory to the largest coffee plantation or the most advanced technology developed for harvesting.

It is a challenging one year project in which he will travel to most of the states of the soon-to-be world's 5th largest economy.

Icon Publications Ltd - the original creators of titles like PhotoPro, Photon, Freelance Photographer and f2 magazine - have launched a new quarterly subscription-only magazine called Cameracraft. With a worldwide readership already growing, it heralds a return to pure photographic values and a bit of a rebellion against gratuitous HDR, plug-in effects and me-too image looks. But it's not Luddite and the first issue features everything from a vintage carbon print to modern wet collodion, iPhone art to the Impossible Project's Polaroid revival. Every issue includes a central 8-page portfolio and the first to be featured are Trevor and Faye Yerbury.

David Kilpatrick is the editor and publisher working from Icon's base in Scotland. Gary Friedman is running the US editorial office near LA - it's 70 years since the original f64 Group favourite magazine 'Camera Craft' was published in California, and the editors hope to put the same mix of technical, craft, science and fine art into the new 'Cameracraft'.

UK subscription costs £20 a year - it's entirely free from advertising, has an optional three year bookshelf binder, and the 44-page editions will be something readers want to keep permanently. Europe: £23. USA/CAN/AUS and rest of world - £25.

Ed Suter has had his collection of South African street life images published by Quivertree Publications. Ed's book celebrates the great style found on the streets of downtown South Africa in fashion, graphic design and street art. The Sunday Times in South Africa called it, "A 288 page extravaganza of such colour that it should come with an epilepsy warning." Ed Suter has an eye for the offbeat, the characterful, the colourful, the contemporary and the traditional and it's all there on the streets of downtown South Africa. From towering street art to hand painted signs, vibrant fabrics to bold fashion, Sharp Sharp celebrates all that is unique in the African metropolis.
