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 2020, rural Ohio, Cornwall, Lilo Raymond, a contract, Adobe's Content Authenticity Initiative and Prathamesh Dixit.

  • In A Year Like No Other, the New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet suggests that 2020 "will long be remembered and studied as a time when more than 1.5 million people globally died during a pandemic, racial unrest gripped the world and democracy itself faced extraordinary tests."
  • In Magic Was Buried Here, photographer Jesse Lenz moves his family to rural Ohio and sees their new home through his children's eyes. He captures that vision in black-and-white.
  • Photographer Cat Vinton chronicled My Year of Roaming Free in Cornwall. As she settles down for the night in her Land Rover, "I drift off to sleep to the sound of waves lapping the shore and the call of tawny owls across the night sky."
  • Mike Johnston presented John and Yoko by Lilo Raymond yesterday on the 40th anniversary of Lennon's murder.
  • Craig Oppenheimer prices a Last Minute Automotive/Portraiture Assignment for $6,650 for a client who was awarded the contract.
  • In Fixing Our Trust in Content, Paul Melcher reflects on the first application of Adobe's Content Authenticity Initiative by photographer Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, who took a series of pictures using the new feature. "Key to this initiative is the realization that technology will not solve the issue of trust in images," he writes.
  • In Life Behind a Good Travel Story, Indian travel photographer Prathamesh Dixit offers some advice for those chance-in-a-lifetime opportunities. "No matter how hard you prepare for all the technical aspects of photography, there are always uncertain challenges that you are bound to face," he writes.

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