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 Chernobyl, Pietro Baroni, a new Lightroom CC Coffee Break series, Stalin's photo editing, GIMP 2.10.0 and the Rolleiflex Instant Kamera.

  • Alan Taylor presents 31 photos in Visiting Chernobyl 32 Years After the Disaster. The set includes recent images from Chernobyl and nearby ghost towns within the exclusion zone, as well as memorials held in Ukraine and Russia.
  • In Revealing the Unspeakable, Pietro Baroni shares his award-winning monochrome portrait series. "Spoken like a scientist at heart, he states that his artistic 'research' investigates the concept of the self, exploring the relationship between people and the world around them."
  • Adobe has launched a new Lightroom CC Coffee Break photography video series hosted by Michelle Wei and Josh Haftel. Like the previous series with Ben Warde, this one shares 60-second tips and tricks:
  • In How Photos Became a Weapon in Stalin's Great Purge, Erin Blakemore writes, "Stalin used a large group of photo retouchers to cut his enemies out of supposedly documentary photographs." And he wasn't the only one.
  • GIMP 2.10.0, the free GNU image editing software, has been released after "six long years of work." See the release notes for details. Downloads are available for Linux, OS X and Windows.
  • Rollei has announced a Kickstarter campaign for the Rolleiflex Instant Kamera, a modern twin-lens reflex. The camera uses Fujifilm Instax Mini film.

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