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 dementia patients, sea shells, Arseniy Neskhodimov, David Alan Harvey, the Canon R5, LitraTorch, Street Photography Day, free online photography courses and Fresco.

  • In Poignant Photographs Reveal the Suffering of Dementia Patients , Miss Rosen presents the monochromatic images of Virgil DiBiase whose own father suffered from the disease. "He said to me, 'Get me out of here,' a metaphor for being trapped cognitively by his disease," DiBiase writes.
  • Harold Davis lined up his Shell Collection in a grid on his light box for this charming image.
  • In Images Exploring Pain of Depression Win Wellcome Photography Prize, Mark Brown reports Arseniy Neskhodimov was named the overall winner of photography prize for his series Prozac.
  • Peter Beaumont reports Magnum Suspends Photographer Over Harassment Claim. The agency is investigation two different complaints against David Alan Harvey and has taken his archive offline.
  • Roger Cicala hosts a podcast with Lensrentals' Zach Sutton and Canon's Drew MacCallum to discuss Canon on the R5 and Lens Development.
  • The Phoblographer gives the $89 LitraTorch 2.0 LED three out of five stars. "LitraTorch 2.0 is fantastic in every single way except for light output," he writes. "And that's the unfortunate part." Because, you know, that's why you buy this sort of thing.
  • Mike Johnston has plans for Street Photography Day on Saturday. With a few inspiring (and unusual) examples of the art.
  • Dahlia Ambrose lists The Best Free Online Photography Courses, many at institutions of higher learning.
  • Adobe's Sue Garibaldi has announced an update to Fresco featuring a new Clipping Masks tool for clipping layers and defining the boundaries of drawn content, a new Brushes Management tool allowing users to decide which Pixel brushes to show or hide and more.

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