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 Maxime Fossat in Madagascar, John Moore at the border, revisiting a scene, using Capture One Pro with Luminar and designing the 2019 Mac Pro.

  • In Inside the World of Work, Maxime Fossat documents labor conditions in Madagascar, one of the world's poorest countries with an economy based on agriculture, mining and textile manufacturing. The International Labour Organization sent Fossat there with the aim of improving the safety and health of workers in global supply chains. He found both formal and informal employment markets. In the informal ones "conditions are among the worst I have seen during my different trips," he says.
  • In Photojournalist Explores Border Stories From Every Angle, Getty Images photographer John Moore talks about his long-term project. "From the Border Patrol agents, to the undocumented immigrants, to immigrants who were in jail, to gang members in Central America, I photographed them to show a common thread of humanity on all sides of the story," he says.
  • The Visual World Is a River of Change, Mike Johnston writes after revisiting a winter scene in spring. "I'm always thinking to myself that I can come back and take a picture later.... I'd be better off as a photographer with the opposite mindset."
  • Derrick Story briefly discusses Using Capture One Pro and Luminar Together. "Each application has its own strengths," he writes. "And when you take the best from each, image editing becomes really powerful and quite fun."
  • Matthew Panzarino says Apple's 2019 Mac Pro Will Be Shaped By Workflows after visiting Cupertino. The Pro Workflow Team will consult "with real customers to understand their actual flow and to see what they're doing in real time." And, even more, Apple will be hiring creatives to watch them work. "From personal experience," Panzarino notes, "I can say that the times I felt most frustrated as a professional photographer using a Mac are when I had to wait. When you're taken out of your rhythm, it creates layers of frustration that can add up to you wanting to flee the platform."

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