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 Rachael Talibart, Ute Mahler, Rodrigo Abd, Nicole York and architectural presets.

  • In Tides and Tempests, Grace Ebert presents a few of Rachael Talibart's images of the English coastline. Some are strictly monochrome, some color but Talibart also uses color selectively to great effect.
  • The Lives of Others showcases the 1974 images of East Germany by Ute Mahler which, she hoped, depicted her fellow citizens with a "timeless coolness."
  • In The Faces of Peruvians, Associated Press photographer Rodrigo Abd documents the hardships Peruvians are enduring during the pandemic. Abd took a wooden camera to the market where 300,000 people come each day to buy food and other essentials to make black-and-whites.
  • Photographer Nicole York discusses the role of Fantasy in Photography. "It reminds us that we all live inside our own heads, creating our reality with every story we tell ourselves and every story we consume," she writes.
  • Adobe is offering Kohki Yamaguchi's free Lightroom presets for architecture and a few tips to go along with them. Each one is illustrated by an image comparison of the effects which, itself, is worth the price of admission.

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