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 Sally Mann, paper, Alexi Lubomirski, Brad Elterman, Gemini Photos and photo book production.

  • Sally Mann Looks Back on Life in the American South reviews her show at the National Gallery of Art. Miss Rosen quotes Mann from the exhibit catalog, "I've been coming to terms with the history into which I was born, the people within that history and the land on which I live, since before I could tie [my shoes]. Even then I felt shame and some inchoate sense of accountability; the past haunted me from what seemed like the far side of time."
  • In Six Contemporary Photographers on Paper as a Source of Inspiration, Thomas Demand, Christiane Feser, Daniel Gordon, Soo Kim, Matt Lipps, and Christopher Russell explains why they fold, cut, layer and shape paper in different ways as part of their photography.
  • In Royal Wedding Photographer Talks About Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Diversity and Fashion's Need to Change, Rosemary Feitelberg profiles Alexi Lubomirski. "On set, I always joke you have to be a psychologist, a therapist, a host of a party and then when everything is done, you can take a picture and be a photographer," he laughs.
  • Alyson Leif interviews rock photographer Brad Elterman. "The most emotional photo for me is my shot of Bob Dylan and Robert DeNiro," he remembers.
  • MacPaw has released Gemini Photos, a subscription-based iPhone app that uses techniques from Gemini 2, the company's macOS duplicate file finder, to clean up your iOS photo library. Monthly access is $1.99 with yearly access for $11.99.
  • MacInTouch is hosting an interesting discussion on Photo Book Production after the demise of Aperture (and, no, Apple Photos isn't the preferred solution).

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