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 Imogen Cunningham, Nadia von Scotti, the pandemic in Germany, the Blanton Museum, AliveColors and the Mercury Pro LTO.

  • Alex Greenberger explores Imogen Cunningham's Rise. "A rare complete picture of Cunningham's oeuvre arrives in October courtesy of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, which has issued a new book that surveys the whole of her output," he writes.
  • In Striking Photographs Capture the Pure Spirit of Nature, Stephanie Wade showcases the images of German photographer Nadia von Scotti, who "combines unforgettable landscapes with vibrant, ethereal editorials that aim to prompt reflection and wonder in the viewer."
  • Gregory Eddi Jones presents Measure and Middle, a series by Björn Nolting inspired by German chancellor Angela Merkel's strategy of "cautious and rational moderation in managing the country's pandemic response."
  • Kirk Tuck returned to the Blanton Museum as it re-opened. He brought along a Panasonic GX8 and Sigma 16mm f1.4 Contemporary lens.
  • AKVIS has updated its AliveColors image editor [MW] to v2.1 with an effects gallery, high pass filter, new FX brush tools, some interface and workflow improvements, as well as the increased stability. A 10-day free trial is available for the $49 application.
  • OWC has announced its Mercury Pro LTO solution for data management/storage/transportation/archiving using 12-TB LTO-8 tapes (which can compress 30-TB of data), the previous generation 6-TB LTO-7 tapes and designed to use future release LTO-9 drives.

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