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 Alain Keler, 13 stories from the past year, Daniella Zalcman, a slide show project, three visual trends and changes as Lula.

  • In Diary of a Photojournalist, French photographer Alain Keler talks about his career working for the Sygma and Gamma news agencies during the 1970s. And gives some interesting advice to the aspiring. "I would tell them to give the best of themselves but not try to be the best. In attempting the latter they will lose their soul," he says.
  • The New York Times Lens column highlights 13 Stories That Captured Photography in 2018.
  • Daniella Zalcman's photos of Native Children Ripped From Their Parents addressed the Canadian residential schools for indigenous youth. Her book Signs of Your Identity was published in 2016, but she has now expanded the project with support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
  • Derrick Story asks What Are Your 'Real Life' Shots of 2018? He has a reason. "Put those images in a collection and build a simple slide show with them," he recommends. "Regardless of how good or bad you're feeling at the moment, I promise that a faint glow will come over you."
  • Paul Melcher reviews three trends indicating What to Expect in 2019 (And Beyond).
  • In The Changing Landscape, Josh Reichmann says goodbye to Chriss Sanderson and Kevin Raber before announcing, "I'm thrilled to continue Michael's legacy as CEO of the site and I join you not only as his son but as an artist committed to sharing -- much as he was." Andrew Molitor provides a slightly different take on the news in his LuLa Update.

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