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 landscape contest winners, icebergs, an EOS Utility update and Andrew Molitor.

  • The International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest winners have been announced. That lead image is actually a slide show. And there's a second slide show of the awards book following the story.
  • Tobias Friedrich dives into 27°F water to capture the The Colossal Underbelly of an Iceberg. "You fly through the water and see this universe down there, which is so random, beautiful and fascinating," he says.
  • Kevin Ames reports Canon has released an EOS Utility Update to fix a macOS Catalina tethering issue that arose with the 10.15.2 update.
  • In Signs and Portents, Andrew Molitor snarls about some "repeated tropes" in photography books "of the Serious Art variety." Near the end he writes, "The photograph ought to, I think, reach into the real world to find its meaning. The power of the photograph lies specifically in how lightly it mediates, how minimally it separates us from reality and how little it allows the artist to impose a system of abstract signs onto the picture."

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