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 Lynsey Addario, Maximilian Mann, Jayme Halbritter, menswear, Michael Rieger, a free guide and the American Masters Digital Archive.

  • In 'It's Still Getting Worse', photojournalist Lynsey Addario reports on the second Covid-19 wave in Britain from both hospitals and funeral homes. "For frontline workers and all Britons, these pictures stand as testaments to their trauma and their perseverance," she writes.
  • German photographer Maximilian Mann traveled to Iran to document the shrinking nature reserves of Lake Urmia, once the second largest salt lake in the world, in his series Fading Flamingos. "Largely unnoticed by the world public, a major environmental disaster is taking place in Lake Urmia in northwestern Iran," he tells Stephanie Wade.
  • Suzanne Sease presents the Airstream Park project of Jayme Halbritter. "Everyone was incredibly welcoming and more than open to being photographed and proudly showing me their trailers," Halbritter writes.
  • Eight Autumn/Winter Menswear Trends curated by Helen Seamons, Jo Jones, Peter Bevan and Matt Fidler will amuse you. Calling them trends, especially. Or menswear, for that matter.
  • Michael Rieger, one of two official FEMA photographers who worked at Ground Zero, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Remember the Love, a photo etching exhibition and community event to honor the heroes of the response to the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
  • LensCulture has published its Photographers' Guide to Working With Galleries with insights from gallerists, curators, exhibiting artists and fine-art educators. The free guide is a 130-page PDF that requires your email address.
  • The American Masters Digital Archive includes over 1,000 hours of footage from more than 1,000 original, never-before-seen, full, raw interviews. Subjects include Maya Angelou, Patti Smith, Mel Brooks, Carol Burnett, Matthew Broderick, Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers, Audra McDonald, Lee Grant, Patricia Bosworth, Sidney Lumet, William Buckley and many others. We searched for photographer and got 22 pages of hits.
