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 architectural replicas, domestic violence, Down syndrome, molds, peppers, the Canon EOS R5, an Epson P700 and an Adobe job offer.

  • David Gualandris presents pairs of Francois Prost's photographs of Architectural Replicas of Venice from China's Hangzhou and Little Venice in Las Vegas. "Prost attempts to challenge our perceptions and readiness to accept what is considered truth, as well as our preconceived ideas of foreign cultures and spaces," he writes.
  • In Portraits of Survival, Daniel King profiles Ashima Yadava's images confronting domestic violence during the coronavirus quarantine.
  • In Meeting Sofie, Amy Parrish looks at the sensitive portraiture by Snezhana von Büdingen of a young woman coming of age with Down syndrome.
  • In The Rise of Molds, Grace Ebert showcases timelapse captures of rhizopus, aspergillus niger, aspergillus oryzae, and penicillium spores with a supermacro lens.
  • Harold Davis slices up some Peppers and a Pear for his latest lattice composition on a light box.
  • Roger Cicala and Aaron Closz are Taking Apart the Canon EOS R5. Roger just can't see where, in this tightly-sealed camera, the heat gets out.
  • Kevin Raber bought an Epson P700 to print at home. He documents the installation and operation. "Never before has printing your own prints been so easy," he reports. Gratuitous cat picture, too.
  • Adobe's social media team is hiring co-creators (that would be you) for CoCreate: MAX. "If you're chosen to participate, you'll be given a paid job to create work that will be seen on Adobe's social channels, Web sites, merchandise and much more during MAX," the team explains. You might think about structuring payment as a subscription.

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