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 Eiko Yamazawa, Cheyna Carr, Ragnar Axelsson, Victoria Krundysheva, an old vertical grip, Ming Thein, and Copytrack.

  • In Reviving the Forgotten Influence of a Pioneering Female Photographer, Marigold Warner talks to curator Tsukasa Ikegami about Eiko Yamazawa's first posthumous retrospective in Tokyo. "When I saw the images, I was so impressed by their modern and sharp quality and was surprised that she was little known, even in Kansai," Ikegami says.
  • Rosie Flanagan presents the low-key images of Los Angeles-based Cheyna Carr in The Beauty of Dark Places. "Carr's work is melancholic but serene; her photographs capture nature at its most sublime: running water and rock faces, mountain ranges and deserts, the quiet depths of forest glades and the soft warmth of soil in sunlight," Flanagan writes.
  • In Written in Ice, Icelandic photographer Ragnar Axelsson took a Leica SL2 and 24-90mm zoom to the polar region. He exposed for a darker palette "because I wanted to show pictures that look like they were taken on the moon or on another planet."
  • Conceptual fashion photographer Victoria Krundysheva suggests How to Grow in Your Work with some practical suggestions.
  • In It's Not an Olympus E-M1X, but It Sure Feels Good, Derrick Story slaps his old vertical grip on his Olympus M5 Mark II and does a double take.
  • Ming Thein has published the fifth part of 20 Stories in which he tells the story behind a few of his favorite shots.
  • Julieanne Kost has released her Photoshop CC 2020 Essential Training on both LinkedIn and
  • Jason Row reviews Copytrack, which "will fight copyright infringement through legal channels." He finds the process does work but is more likely to be engaged for commercial businesses that violate copyright rather than personal bloggers and other small time offenders.

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