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 Taylor Dorrell, the woods, a comet, the Fujifilm GFX 100, the Orton Effect, instant cameras and New York City exhibitions.

  • In The Privilege of Peace, Sarah Roberts explores the work of Taylor Dorrell, who "photographs the daily lives of teenagers growing up in America's suburban Midwest" in his series White Fences.
  • Andrew Molitor has posted A Walk in the Woods. "I took a walk in the woods today, to clear my head, and to be for a little time in the company of nature," he introduces the images. He might publish it as a magazine.
  • Motion designer Christian Stangl and composer Wolfgang Stangl tapped into over 400,000 still photos taken by ESA's Rosetta spacecraft of The Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko to make this 3:25 video that takes you to the celestial body itself:
  • It took Jim Kasson 44 posts before he reached his Fujifilm GFX 100 Conclusions. "I like it a lot," he writes before delving into the details. "Before the GFX 100 shipped, there were many who said that it would be a niche camera, with volume a tiny fraction of that for its 50-MP brethren," he recalls. "I doubted that then. I doubt it even more now."
  • Wayne Fox details a new way way of producing The Orton Effect in Photoshop to produce "a dreamy soft focus glow."
  • If you're thinking of following in Louis Mendez's footsteps, Daven Mathies lists The Best Instant Cameras for 2019. We know which one of the five picks Mendez would use, but it's the expensive one.
  • Holly Hughes curates a list of Must-See Exhibitions in NYC During PhotoPlus 2019.

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