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 Ioanna Sakellaraki, Geloy Concepcion, Nelvin Cepeda, Deanna Templeton, the Empire State Building, a background effect, the industry, a 1.4x teleconverter, AI technologies and Safari 14.1.

  • In The Truth Is in the Soil, Cat Lachowskyj interviews Ioanna Sakellaraki about her return home. "When I returned to Greece after my father's death, I slowly began unravelling a personal narrative of loss, interweaving the fabrications of grief in my family and culture, looking into how my work might untangle the endless remaking that surviving loss entails." Her series is a Juror’s Pick in the LensCulture Art Photography Awards 2021.
  • In He Asked Strangers About Things They Regret Not Saying The Replies Were Cathartic, Julia Weng and Michele Abercrombie talk to Geloy Concepcion about his photo project that took on a life of its own. "As long as there is someone sending a note, the project will keep on going until the last note is received," Concepcion told them.
  • In A Combat Photographer Looks Back on the 'Forever War', the San Diego Union-Tribune's Nelvin Cepeda reflects on his experience there. "Learning that the U.S. plans to finally bring its two decades of war in Afghanistan to a close came as no surprise," he writes. "Drawing down was always inevitable. It was just a matter of when and how."
  • In What She Said, Deanna Templeton talks about her portrait series that has been published in a book of the same name with texts from her diaries and journals "written when I was 14 to 18 years old."
  • Joe McNally celebrates as the Empire State Building Turns 90 with some of his favorites shots from the mast and of the people who've worked on it.
  • Scott Kelby brings Looney Tunes to Photoshop with a Quick & Easy Photoshop Background Effect. Here's the 5:21 video:

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