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 Toni Frissell, Lola Flash, MoMA's new group show, Moab Entrada Rag and Lightroom on a Chromebook.

  • The Works of Photographer Toni Frissell include 21 of the 340,000 photos she donated to the Library of Congress in 1971. The last one is not to be missed.
  • In Beauty, Pride and Power in Photos by Lola Flash, David Gonzalez presents a selection of Lola Flash's 4x5 view camera portraits. "I learned to dial in more yellow or magenta, or make skin tones blue or green. I took away what the people were," she tells him. "Sometimes gender got blurred. It created a world that was more inviting and less judgmental, but still colorful."
  • In What's New in Photography? Humanism, MoMA Says, Arthur Lubow previews the new group show Being opening March 18.
  • Harold Davis make a New Print on Moab Entrada Rag Textured, concluding "the moderate texture of the paper contrasts but works very nicely with the styling of the image."
  • Daven Mathies asks, Can a Chromebook Replace a Laptop in a Photographer's Workflow? The question arises because the Android version of Lightroom does run on a Chromebook (with a glitch or two) configured as a tablet. He says the screen is gorgeous if glossy but doesn't get into the bit-depth or dithering or depth of black commonly inflicted on low-end systems. If you can't see what you're doing, how can you edit?

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
