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 British youth, Kilian Schönberger, the MoMA Photo Club, Tom O'Brien, L.A. photographers, four Canson Infinity Arches papers, the Envoy Pro SX, preparing a gift Mac and an M1 iMac review.

  • Four Decades of British Youth features images from Youth Rising in the UK: 1981-2021, a new exhibition of nine photographers who have documented the subject for over 40 years.
  • Grace Ebert features Kilian Schönberger's enchanting images of Germany's Spruce Trees from his project Endorsement for Spruce Forests.
  • Julia Fiore and Sarah Meister invite you to Join the MoMA Photo Club in honor of National Photography Month and MoMA's new exhibition Fotoclubismo: Brazilian Modernist Photography, 1946–1964. Special Photo Club guests from around the world will challenge you to get out and shoot with a particular theme in mind. The current theme is Shadows, hosted by Brazilian ballerina and activist Ingrid Silva.
  • This week's LensRentals podcast discusses Engineering the Shot With Nat Geo's Tom O'Brien, who is a photo engineer. "From fabricating complete machines from scratch to modifying prebuilt designs, Tom works with some of the most innovative pieces of gear to help capture the seemingly impossible."
  • In New Narratives by L.A. Photographers of All Ages, Jill Moniz discusses the ideas behind the Getty exhibition Photo Flux: Unshuttering LA and looks at some of its key works while Getty head of education Keishia Gu then delves into the three-year-old Getty Unshuttered program. Photo Flux is on view at the Getty Center through Oct. 10.
  • Mark Segal takes a detailed look at Four New Canson Infinity Arches Papers. "All four are mould-made "fine art" matte papers with cotton substrate and no OBAs," he notes.
  • OWC has introduced its Envoy Pro SX, a compact but ruggedized SSD with a three-year warranty. Available in 240-GB, 480-GB, 1-TB and 2-TB capacities, the 1-TB model is $349.
  • In Preparing Your Mac for Someone Else to Own, Howard Oakley list seven steps for passing on a working machine that's seen normal use.
  • Afer Two Months With Apple's New M1 iMac, John Voorhees has "fallen hard for it." He writes, "Today's iMac can still play the role of a centralized family computer as my first iMac's did, but it's equally good at professional work or sitting on a counter at a retail location."

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