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 Julius Shulman, Damian Heinisch, Leonardo Scotti, Panasonic and Olympus news, Ibarionex Perello, PhotoShop Camera, packing prints, Peter Eastway, a big contract and content authenticity.

  • Julius Shulman once asked, 'What Good Is a Dream House?'. Gary riichiō Fox tells how the the 97-year-old architectural photographer raised the question at an event for a dream house coffee table book where an exhibit of the effects of Hurricane Katrina was also being held. "What good is a dream house if you haven't got a dream?" he had asked. The Getty has digitized a few of Shulman's images.
  • Izabela Radwanska Zhang reviews Damian Heinisch's new photo book 45, which has won Mack's First Book Award. Born in Poland and raised in Germany, Heinisch's book was inspired by train journeys made by three generations of his family. "I understood that my family's lives had been considerably influenced by forced immigration and that trains had played a significant role in the process of resettlement," he says.
  • Devid Gualandris showcases the Colorful Stories of Italian photographer Leonardo Scotti using film.
  • In Good m4/3 News, Bad m4/3 News, Thom Hogan pats Panasonic on the back while digging into the announcement today that Olympus plans to sell off its imaging division by the end of the year.
  • Ibarionex Perello explores The Growth in a Challenge that makes you "feel the discomfort of taking on something new."
  • Kirk Tuck kicks the tires on Adobe's new PhotoShop Camera App using himself as a model. This isn't going to turn out well. But then, no one looks good in a wide-angle lens.
  • In How to Pack Photo Prints for Mailing or Shipping, Mike Johnston shows a couple ways to get the job done.
  • Kevin Raber has a Conversation With Peter Eastway about being stranded for 30 days off the coast of South America with 60 percent of the ship infected with Covid-19. The piece, which presents the 51-minute video, also includes several of Eastway's images from Antarctica.
  • In Point of Sale and Collateral Content for a Wine Brand, Craig Oppenheimer negotiates a $26,550 deal for six food/wine pairings, each with two variations in both vertical and horizontal orientations (26 images in all), shot by a portraiture and home/garden specialist.
  • In Adobe Reinforces Commitment to Content Authenticity, Will Allen previews the initiative's white paper designed to "provide insight into how we're building the system that will enable creators to permanently attach attribution data to their asset as they share it with the world." In short:

Our privacy-conscious approach means we're giving full control to the creator, who can choose whether they'd like to attach their name; show the entire edit history; or share the location where the photo or video was shot. This metadata is immutable, securely stored and available for anyone to read.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
