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 Italy deserted, Harry and Meghan, Julio Aguilar, printing, a photo archive and lost portraits.

  • In Italy Coronavirus Lockdown Leaves Streets Deserted, the Guardian presents images of the country's empty public spaces.
  • Photojournalist Samir Hussein got A One in a Million shot of Harry and Meghan at their first official appearance together in Britain since their January announcement they were stepping back as working royals. Hussein tells the story to Anna Conrad.
  • Sports photographer Julio Aguilar writes about Conquering the Sport of Kings, which would be polo, the oldest team sport in the world. He's in his third season as the official club photographer at Sarasota Polo Club in the Tampa Bay area.
  • Dahlia Ambrose provides a Guide to Printing Photos that includes preparing your image to and choosing the right printer, ink and paper. "Printing can initially be a tough and confusing process," she writes. But it's worth it.
  • The nonprofit consortium that acquired the archive of Johnson Publishing Co., publisher of Ebony, Jet and other publications, has announced an Advisory Council to inform the preservation and future use of the historic photographic collection, ensuring the archive is made available for broad public use. The archive includes 3.35 million negatives and slides, 983,000 photographs, 166,000 contact sheets and 9,000 audio and visual recordings.
  • Enjoli Francis and Eric Noll tell the story of the Family Working to Reunite People With Portraits Left Behind in Closed Photo Shop. "When Brian Bononi was sent to a shuttered shop to do some measurements, he came across a pile of items bearing the images of various families that captured special moments and milestones sitting abandoned and forgotten by the door," they write. Bononi didn't leave them there.

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