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 Chanho Park, Alexvi Li, Steve Simon, Harold Davis and creating public albums in Apple Photos.

  • In Fearing Death, and Photographing the Rituals That Surround It, John Otis profiles Korean photographer Chanho Park. Park lost his mother as a child and has spent his adulthood confronting his fear of death. "Serious thoughts on death could turn the human life from greed and selfishness to respect and sincerity, from worshiping gold to pursuing reason." And the "healing power" of photography "helps us to face the trauma," he adds.
  • In A Model Life in Beijing, fashion photographer Alexvi Li documents the lives of foreign models for his project Peking Apartments. "The majority of the girls are between 14-23 years old, they come to China with big dreams of modeling," he says. His images, he adds, capture "a universal reaction by young people when they realize that the reality is much harder than they had imagined beforehand."
  • Steve Simon shares his tips for taking Street Photography in the Urban Landscape. He doesn't ask permission to take a photo, he says, preferring to start a conversation and shoot a series of shots.
  • In Walking in the Gardens of Galicia, Harold Davis continues his Spanish pilgrimage, sampling a free buffet and slogging through the mud. Iberia Airlines found his suitcase, too, delivering it as he was taking a shower of course.
  • Kirk McElhearn unveils how to Create Public Albums With Apple Photos. "I'm sure that most users -- like me -- never discover this feature because it's so well hidden," he writes.
