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 Photographic Journeys, Lucy Laucht, Wally Koval, Taylor Roades, 12 Sunsets, Nikkors retiring, Medium Format Magazine and the blue cellophane trick.

  • LensCulture presents the winners of its Photographic Journeys contest. "The artistic responses that were put forward, from creative people in more than 150 countries on six continents, delighted us," the editors write. "Here we are proud to present the work of 37 remarkable artists, many who stretch the idea of a "journey" in fantastic new ways."
  • In Summer in Cornwall, British photographer Lucy Laucht takes a new look at her home country while following the paths taken by her late father. "My approach to photography is about a feeling, an energy," she says. "I ask myself, what's the story you want to tell?"
  • Accidentally Wes Anderson is an Instagram account inspired by the symmetry and color palettes of Wes Anderson's movies and the source for the book of the same name by Wally Koval.
  • Suzanne Sease presents A Ribbon of Highway, the personal project of Taylor Roades. "It is a collection of photographs taken between 2010-2020, a decade of my twenties where I moved and travelled extensively across the country, coming of age and questioning both my own value systems and what being Canadian might mean," Roades says.
  • In 2012 the Getty Research Institute acquired Ruscha's Sunset Boulevard archive and has been digitizing the collection. GRI has recently launched 12 Sunsets, an interactive Web site that allows anyone to explore Ruscha's Sunset Boulevard archive. Erin Migdol tells the back story of the project while suggesting a scavenger hunt for the old buildings.
  • In A Lot of Lens Legacy Is Retiring, Thom Hogan names names and urges you to order if you want one of these soon-to-be-discontinued optics.
  • In The Story of the Medium Format Magazine, Kevin Raber reveals what he loves about Olaf Sztaba's publication.
  • Chris Gampat reveals The Blue Cellophane Rangefinder Trick to make your rangefinder more visible.

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