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 portraits of North Korean defectors, a rare shot of James Mattis, Edward Weston's kitchen, the iPhone as accessory, Icelandic mountains and having your photos printed.

  • Photographer Tim Franco's series Unperson is about Telling the Stories of Defectors From North Korea. In this piece, he shows a few of the portraits with a short description of their escape.
  • In How a Photographer Got a Rare Shot of James Mattis, Mark Peterson tells Katie Van Syckle, "It is just luck. It is not any skill on my part. You're just praying that they move into the area you're hoping and that there's a gesture that then works at that moment." Mattis had declined a formal portrait for a cover story so Peterson got the call.
  • Harold Davis shares a colorful image of Edward Weston's Kitchen.
  • Derrick Story asks, Where Does the iPhone Fit In? with his other travel gear. "As it turns out, the iPhone plays quite nicely with the other kids, but not in the ways that you might think," he writes.
  • In From the Mountains, Ming Thein ventures inland to the volcanic mountains of Iceland "unfiltered by clouds, plus 'sharp' underlying topology."
  • Rick LePage explains How to Print Your Photos or, more properly, how to have them printed for you using online print services and exporting from Photoshop or Lightroom.
