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 Naohiro Maeda, elderly women in a Siberian village, Raw Therapee's Z 7 banding fix and disappearing Google Pixel photos.

  • In Naohiro Maeda Explores the Spectrum of Mourning, Rosie Flanagan presents a set of the Japanese photographer's series Passages. "Two years ago my close friend passed away and I moved to the United States," Maeda told her. "These two strong experiences happened sequentially and created a disconnection I have never felt before. The weather and time of day in my work reflect my transition from sadness to calmness to lightness."
  • In The Loss and Longing of Elderly Women in a Siberian Village, Ellyn Kail presents a set of photos of nomadic reindeer herders in Northern Siberia by Oded Wagenstein. "While men are usually encouraged to remain within the migrating community and maintain their social roles, the women often face the struggles of old age alone," Wagenstein told her. Tea and cookies, sweets and fruit led to photographs of the women.
  • In Mitigating Z 7 PDAF Banding, Jim Kasson reports a new version of Raw Therapee will address the issue. We suspect it won't be alone.
  • Dami Lee reports Some Google Pixel Owners' Camera Photos Aren't Saving. Models affected include the Pixel 3/3XL and 2/2XL. "The issue occurs specifically in cases when the user takes a photo with Google Camera and switches to another app or locks the phone immediately after. Users are able to see a thumbnail of the photo in the Camera gallery circle, but upon tapping it, the photo disappears," she writes.

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