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 Robin Hinsch, Adam Hillman, David Goldblatt, Armin Tehrani, the Panasonic GX9, Lightroom view options, Acorn, BackupList+ and Dreamstime.

  • Hamburg photographer Robin Hinsch won the Environment category in this year's Sony World Photography Awards for Wahala, his project depicting "a system that only survives as a result of the total exploitation of raw materials and a lack of scruples within society."
  • Adam Hillman photographs Sliced and Diced Food Arranged Into Color-Coded Sequences. It's his version of a balanced diet, Grace Ebert explains. "There's something beautiful about working with something so transient and the beauty of the materials is something that can only be preserved through photography long after the food within the photo has either rotted or been eaten," he says.
  • Miss Rosen presents the Complex Portraits of Afrikaners During Apartheid of South Africa's David Goldblatt. "I was much troubled by the contradictory feelings of liking, revulsion and fear that these Afrikaner encounters aroused in me and felt the need somehow to come closer to these lives and to probe their meaning for me," he said. "I wanted to do this with the camera." He did.
  • Copenhagen-based photographer Armin Tehrani explored The Alluring Landscapes of the Faroe Islands for Teeth Magazine. "Tehrani's images perfectly encapsulate this isolated, captivating land," Emily Grundon writes.
  • Mike Johnston has published the first part of his review of the Panasonic GX9 and 12-60mm lens. Turns out he likes the kit lens after all.
  • Julieanne Kost covers Customizing View Options in Lightroom Classic. That turns out to be a lot to cover.
  • Flying Meat released Acorn 6.6 [M] late last month with a new shape processor for macOS 10.13+ that acts like filters for shapes.
  • Rob DuToit has released his donationware BackupList+ 8.8.0 [M], "an all-purpose backup utility for OS X widely used by people who want a simple way of protecting their data without the hassles of complex software." It relies on rsync to do the heavy lifting.
  • In From Dreamstime With Love, Dreamstime has announced "an extra 10 percent increase in the royalties value for all downloads." Serban Enache writes, "The stock photo industry has experienced its own economic contraction but we're hoping to pay our contributors these increased royalties for as long as possible (no guarantee about the time frame though)."

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look five years back. And please support our efforts...
