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 Still Lives, Zaido, Atlanta, the PhotoPXL team and Backup Friday.

  • The New York Times feature Still Lives presents the work of 15 photographers during the pandemic.
  • In Zaido: The Ancient Japanese Ritual to Bring Good Luck, Yukari Chikura traveled to a remote village to document the 1,300 year old ceremony. Steidl has published a book of the images.
  • Covid Killed the Atlanta Drug Trade and the photographer Willis captured the lull (which did not last). Jamilah King reports the images of the 36-year-old Navy reservist and art student who lives in Marietta "range from day-glo glimpses of strip clubs to resolutely matter-of-fact portraits of neighborhood drug corners, each photo accompanied by an archly oblique caption."
  • Kevin Raber has posted the nearly two-hour Meet the PhotoPXL Team video from his Zoom session on July 30. He's added a timeline so you can jump to your favorite personality.
  • Scott Kelby proclaims today Back-Up Your Lightroom Classic Catalog Friday. It's been about eight months since the last one, he notes, but as Pope John XXIII used to say, "Every day is a good day to back up." Or something like that.

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