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 calming images, Operation Barbarossa, recovered images from the 1980s, Alex Potter, Canon's R system and ethical AI.

  • David Gualandris presents a set of film images titled Mediterranean Abstracts by Arthur Groeneveld and Bamboo van Kampen. "The series was born in response to the current uncertain times, where we find ourselves confined to our home," the two said. "We dived into our archive and found a minimalist collection of Mediterranean memories with a calming palette."
  • Amos Chapple reveals What a Nazi Soldier Saw in Ukraine. "In the summer of 1941, Dieter Keller was one of millions of Nazi soldiers who stormed into the Soviet Union in the invasion dubbed Operation Barbarossa," he writes. Over 200 of Keller's images, shot with a FED 35mm camera, were bought after his death and have been made into a book The Eye of War.
  • Discovered in the basement of the Rio cinema in 2016, an archive of 12,000 images made by an initiative for unemployed people provides a portrait of daily life in Hackney in the '80s. "There are lots of pictures from the protests, but that isn't really the remarkable bit," Max Leonard said. "The remarkable bit for me is seeing people playing cricket on the street, kids coming out of school, pensioners playing Bingo." Leonard hopes to publish the images that have already been digitized and shared on Instagram.
  • Noah Lanard reports A Town in the Heart of Trump Country Learned to Love Immigrants Then Covid Hit. Alex Potter illustrates the story in photos.
  • Thom Hogan has a few Followup Canon Impressions. Meanwhile Mike Johnston wants to know what you think about the Canon R5 and R6 Introduction.
  • In Forrester Analyst Provides Three Principles for 'Ethical AI', Zach Baumgarten reveals they are "fairness and bias prevention, trust and transparency and accountability." Which only sounds like five.

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