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 Desmond Tutu, the L.A. Times, Nina Hamberg, Google Arts & Culture Exhibits, 2021 camera line-ups and a photo industry review.

  • The Guardian presents Archbishop Desmond Tutu: A Life in Pictures. "The anti-apartheid Nobel peace prize-winning activist for racial justice and LGBT rights and retired Anglican archbishop of Cape Town" has died at 90.
  • In Top 2021 Photos: Times Photographers Reflect, the Los Angeles Times photography staff reflects on the work they did during the year. Unlike many of the best-of presentations, there's a nice mix of local with wider coverage.
  • Nina Hamberg is Revisiting the Front Line of Second-Wave Feminism Through Photographs,. Her own, that is, made 52 years ago as a fine arts photographer studying at San Francisco State. "It's made me feel really proud of what we did, how hard we tried, how much we cared, how passionate we were," Hamberg reflects. "This is the time to have that purpose again."
  • The Getty lists the Top Five Google Arts & Culture Exhibits From 2021. "What were Victorian women doing when they weren't going to tea parties or bustling their bustles?" it asks. "Making photo collages, of course!"
  • Thom Hogan describes Where We Ended Up in 2021. At least as far as full-frame mirrorless and APS-C cameras go. One thumb up and the other down.
  • In 2021 Wrap Party: Photo Industry Review, the LensRentals crew talk about "their favorite gear of the year, what they're looking forward to next year, and what photographers inspired them in 2021."

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