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 portraits of Leonard Bernstein, Jason Peterson, Lu Guang, the Fuji X-H1, Erin Patrice O'Brien, Harold Davis reveal and Evelyn Berezin.

  • In An Intimate Look at Photographs of Leonard Bernstein, Rena Silverman goes through Leonard Bernstein 100: The Masters Photograph the Maestro, a book of 100 photographs of the composer, conductor and educator taken by various photographers over the years including Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Ken Heyman, Yousuf Karsh, Stanley Kubrick, Gjon Mili, Arnold Newman, Ruth Orkin, Irving Penn and W. Eugene Smith.
  • In Broader Horizons, Jason Peterson uses a 16-35mm lens for his aerial shots of Chicago. What distortion there was "was absolutely no problem to fix in Lightroom," he notes.
  • Lu Guang Detained in Xinjiang, his wife reports. "We believe that the only logical reason that he went missing while he's in Xinjiang is that the Chinese authorities are afraid that Lu Guang might have taken some pictures about the real situation in Xinjiang," Patrick Poon of Amnesty International added.
  • In The Fuji X-H1: Mike's Verdict, Mike Johnston concludes his two-parter on "one of the best cameras I've ever tried."
  • In Smithsonian Magazine: Erin Patrice O'Brien, Heidi Volpe interviews the Brooklyn-based photographer about her photos for Learning to Speak Latino in the magazine.
  • In The Making of the Abstractions, Harold Davis reveals the secret behind yesterday's images. He also reveals the images were shot with a Lensbaby Sweet 85 at f1.8 with an extension tube.
  • We would be remiss not to note the passing of Evelyn Berezin at the age of 93. In 1971, Berezin designed and built the Redactron, the first true word processor, liberating not just secretaries but writers too from the unforgiving typewriter. The patron saint of cut-and-paste created the first killer app.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
