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 MoMA, Silvana Trevale, Grigoriy Yaroshenko, Chanell Stone, panoramas, Olympus, Dispo, David Hobby, archives, strange sayings and the Daylight Photo Awards.

  • Magali Duzant reviews Companion Pieces, an online exhibit of new photography from the Museum of Modern Art.
  • In The Lives of Venezuelan Youth, Stephanie Wade presents the work of Silvana Trevale. "I initiated this project due to the frustration and anger I feel toward the current crisis in Venezuela," Trevale says. "What intrigues me are the children's constant shifts from a state of playful naivety, hardening into a more rigid, stoic attitude to their lived realities."
  • The Iron Road highlights Russian photographer Grigoriy Yaroshenko's two-year project exploring the Russian railroad. "The task was to show the daily life of the railroad, with its beauty and power, as well as the regular people who work in its various segments," he says.
  • Will Matsuda describes How Chanell Stone Is Reframing Nature Photography. "Working within predominantly Black neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and her home city of Oakland, Stone photographs locations like overgrown lots and green spaces at public housing projects, often including herself in the frame," he writes.
  • Harvey Stearn continues his series on panoramas with Stitched Images From Two-Dimensional Arrays.
  • Rod Lawton lists Five Reasons Why You Should Care What Happens to Olympus and, after reading it, Derrick Story shared his thoughts on Why Olympus Matters.
  • Taylor Lorenz asks, Are Disposables the Future of Photo Sharing? She takes a look at David Dobrik's popular new photo app Dispo "that mimics the experience of using a disposable camera."
  • In Cross-Pollination, Strobist David Hobby takes a portrait of a beekeeper in which "your subject is the bee, you are the pollen and your next photo project is the flower across the field."
  • Joe McNally is reliving Memories and Missteps From the Archive. "Memories and Missteps From the Archive," he writes.
  • In My Back Pages, Harold Davis shows us what he found in his archives lately.
  • Thom Hogan "translates" a few of the Latest Strange Sayings he found in Internet gear reviews.
  • The Daylight Photo Awards are open for submissions through May 15. "One top prize winner will receive a $1000 cash prize and the creation of a digital feature. Juror picks will be promoted via internal and external marketing campaigns and have the opportunity to collaborate with Daylight on the creation of a monograph of their work." $35 submission fee.

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